Did you ever wish there was someone who could whisper all the words that your soul longed to hear and dreamed would come true for you?
This wish comes true every time you and I stop. Pause. Look and listen.
Every tree that stands at attention – still in winter.
Every sky that moves across your horizon, as the clouds of winter, heavy with rain, quietly sway.
And every mountain that stands, carved in the stone and soil, all declare this…
I’m with you.
Yes, it’s God’s whispers for you.
Just between you and me, I’m listening to all that my heart wants to believe – yet doubts want to crowd in and blow all God’s whispers away.
Don’t be afraid. God whispers in return. Nothing can chase away my love for you.
Just stop. Pause. And listen. You’ll find it to be true too.
There. In your heart, do you feel it? There. In your hand, do you see it?
God’s One Word has never left. Every word he’s spoken. It will not be shaken. No other voice can diminish the One Voice who whispers —
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love, I have drawn you to myself.” Jeremiah 31:3
“Say the word and there is light // Say the word and dead bones rise // Every start and end hangs on your voice // For your word never returns void
Written in a billion skies // Speaking to this heart of mine // All that I am with all creation // And it will not be shaken // Every word you have spoken shall remain
My soul will hang on every word you say // Cause I know your word will never ever fail.” Lyrics to Say The Word by Hillsong United (I’m playing this song on repeat today. click here to enjoy it as a prayer.)
In my morning walk in spiritual whitespace, seeing God’s quiet poetry on this morning’s wintry walk brings peace to my soul. Don’t you love how trees soothe the soul?
As a new week begins, let’s rest our mind, soul and bodies on the words God’s etched on our hearts today. In every winter tree at rest and every sky standing still, as the clouds move at the sway of his gentle hands, brush aside the voices that clamor — listen to his intimate whispers for you,
Don’t worry. My promise to love you will never fade.
You’re all I ever wanted, safe in my heart. today.”

If I was anywhere near an event you spoke at I would drop everything and run there! This morning’s post was what I needed. Thank you. Thank you for your willingness to be vulnerable.
“God’s quiet poetry” — love that phrase, Bonnie. He’s all around us in creation, in his people, in our souls. But it requires intentionality on our part to hear the poetry, to enjoy anew his everlasting, unfailing love. Thank you!
Lifting you up on your journey, Bonnie! I love “God’s quiet poetry.” He is the great poet who has penned our lives. Thank you for a breath of fresh air today.
