Loving One Another

When I Pause


Sometimes when I pause

I hear the earth breathe –

I feel the breath of God

In the rustle of the trees.

Sometimes in the silence

God speaks to my longing soul.

To hear God’s voice and heed God

In the stillness, is my goal.

Sometimes in the quiet

God reaches from above.

With fingers long and gentle,

God touches me with love.

Where I am, God is –

I know God’s always near.

So, in the silence, listen –

God whispers, be still and hear.

When I pause, God whispers.

I hear God when I’m still.

In the silence, listen –

Then heed and do God’s will.
