Do you sit and let the silence from within you rise up?
It’s there you know.
that fills you with peace.
The kind that can’t be manufactured in a factory.
He is bigger than our hate of one another and ourselves.
He prays in you and
if you stopped, and listened
to your heart you would hear him
He gives life to what is considered dead.
Do you scorn the solitude
like when you hide from your shadows?
The shadows of regret, hate, fear, guilt, and shame
These burdens push out His peace.
He is not holding back his arms to you,
He’s not out to get you, he does not have an agenda
He is not trying to punish you
He is the peace you’re striving for.
He knows you so well, and that scares you.
You’re scared he might make you do something you don’t want to do.
Giving up what you don’t want to let go of.
But he has something that you don’t have,
and that is patience,
and mercy, to lavish on you.
It is unlimited to what he can do.
