The Forced Stop


Oh GOD never STOPS

so why should we ever STOP

STOPPING to STOP

to HEAR

HIS small whisper

even when restlessness keeps us awake at night

even in the search for the the noise of distractions

even in the midst of the noisiness of life

because

HE STILL SPEAKS

drawing us so near

so that we do STOP

because GOD never STOPS

asking~

"Come to ME, all you who are weary & burdened, & I will give you rest" (Matthew 11: 28)

Even in the midst of the noise of frustration.

Even when you want to throw the towel in

HE STILL SPEAKS

telling us to STOP because GOD never STOPS

being our everything~

"I can do all things [which HE has called me to do]

through HIM who

strengthens & empowers me [to fulfill HIS purpose

—I am self-sufficient in CHRIST'S sufficiency;

I am ready for anything & equal to anything through HIM

who infuses me with inner strength & confident peace] (Philippians 4: 13)

Oh but when we STOP enough

to HEAR the voice of the ONE who never STOPS being our enough~

"BUT HE said to me,

'MY grace is sufficient for you,

for MY power is made perfect in weakness'.

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,

so that CHRIST'S power may rest on me" (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Thank YOU LORD

for never STOPPING to speak

to me & you & everyone else

as we STOP & HEAR the

"SONG OF MY FATHER" (listen to the song below)
