Rays of light through clouds above.

Learning to Listen

There is a peace within my heart
that I've not always known.
It started with a tiny spark,
but with His love, it's grown.

What once were subtle nuances
that I sought to ignore,
now are poignant messages
of all He has in store.

For many years, His whispered cues
fell on my deaf ears;
but when I learned to listen,
He conquered all my fears.

I've come to seek Him everywhere
in sunshine and in rain.
His presence brings such comfort
through joy and sorrow and pain.

The more I seek, the more I find;
my life is no longer the same.
For every blessing He s bestowed,
I praise His holy name.
