A GENTLE VOICE
My ears have learned to hear a gentle voice
In the bustling crowd
On the noisy street in the midst of the city
Along a sidewalk in a park
By the ocean, along a river, up a mountain
Alone at night,
A kind voice that speaks peace tenderly within,
All while electronic and invisible energy waves bombard chaotically.
Later, a needed walk through the local food market
Vegetables of every sort in abundance
So beautiful on the surface
Yet, often lacking minerals and balanced food value,
City drinking water seemingly processed through a chemistry lab
Trace heavy metals, synthetic hormones and bits of pharmaceuticals,
And worse- fluoride!
But Messiah’s Spirit says to trust
To rest in confidence even as fine jet spray settles down from above,
Even as cities lie shattered in Eastern Ukraine and elsewhere.
To trust and rest in Heaven’s peace
Heaven’s free gift
Eternal knowledge of God a treasure seeded deep within a human spirit
More precious than any jewels
Greater value than silver or gold, or other rare metals
Eternal gift of Messiah’s Spirit poured out generously,
More powerful than the craft and wickedness
The carelessness, recklessness, inventive foolishness of any man
Or any woman or group of any nation.
Pure water flows
From the Mountains of Israel
Waters the lush orchards and fields
Invigorates at every level,
Cleanses and heals!
The fate of mankind in “wars and rumors of wars”,
As self destructive human nature falls lower and lower
The wicked will act wickedly as Prophet Daniel wrote
But the wise shine brightly as the sun, he continued.
Yes, there is always truth and well-being peace to be found
A mighty Kingdom of Peace in a healthy garden of delight
Ruled by the King of all spiritual Jews
Who provides food and drink, air to breathe, a quiet atmosphere
Bathed in new sunlight;
His lovely children flock to Him
Most beautiful in His sight, gathered beneath His wings,
Comfort and safety at His side.
Even the death of the body
Now a passing scent of incense
Carried on a calming evening breeze as the Holy Voice calls another home,
The New Day Sun soon to rise in every heart
In every resurrected spiritual body.
