My Observation in the Silence

Tomorrow I will write more about the retreat...but I am going to enter the poem that the Lord gave me in my quiet time with Him. He is truly amazing!

I hear the silence
and in it, peace
I feel the wind
and in it, comfort
I feel the sun
and in it feel the warmth of the Son
wrapping me in His love
I hear the ocean
and in it, Your power
I hear birds
and in them, the song of joy
I see the tree's, the lake, the grass
and in them the tender love of Your handiwork
the beauty, the splendor, the majesty
I sit in awe
of this girl You have created
more beauty, more splendor, more majesty than these
that is what You see
I sit in wonder
of how that can be possible

But then,
I hear the peace of Your silence
feel the comfort of Your wind
the warmth of Your Son
hear the power of Your ocean
the birds singing their joy
my eyes behold your creation
and I know

I know
You are not just my God
I know
You are not just my Savior
I know
You are my Abba Daddy
And I,
I am Daddy's little girl

Wow, you have spoken the words of my heart! I began to cry immediately after I started reading this beautiful poem. Sherri is my sister and she sent me the link to your blog wanting to share this awesome poem. Thank you for being transparent and blessing others by sharing what God is doing in your life.
