The Voice

By Ken L. Birks

 

We come into this world naked and innocent as babes in hunger.
We see and perceive all that is around us with great wonder.
Perceptions of reality formed by others bring assumptions with confusion.
Caught in a web of meaningless existence, we cry out in desperation.
Lost in confusion we grope about in blindness hoping for a ray of light.
For the blindness that grips the soul, there’s hope in the dark of the night.

In the midst of all that clutters, a still small voice speaks with difference.
Where did it come from? What was it that spoke with such significance?
Oh that it could be captured – that brief moment with such peace!
It spoke with such warmth and love in the midst of turmoil and unease.
The voice in the wind will surely come again as we wait with expectation.
It must be seized when the wind blows with such sweetness before cessation.

Coming as a beam of light, the voice points to a new path to explore.
It becomes stronger giving direction to the path forward, so near.
With eyes riveted, the light rests on something blocking the pathway ahead.
With eyes now focused, a cross stands in the way that must be followed.
The voice speaks with such clarity, explaining the meaning of the cross.
We realize, we must now embrace it fully before making further progress.

Having tasted of the sweetness that comes from obeying the voice, we trust.
The peace coming from obedience floods our souls as other voices are hushed.
How do we embrace something that represents pain, humiliation and suffering?
As we embrace it and carry it everywhere we go, His voice, we must now trust.
With confidence and assurance, unafraid of what's ahead, forward we thrust.

To our surprise, all burdens and the cares that weighed us down are lifted.
Our sins, added to the weight, we realize, the One it represents has now assisted.
Weightless, it now seems, though the weight of our sin and shame are added.
He who gives voice walks alongside, bearing the brunt of the weight, acquitted.
He continues to whisper to us, “Follow Me and cast all of your cares upon Me.”

No longer lost in confusion, we willingly embrace His cross daily, so freely.
Knowing this voice leads to daily adventures of faith and love, we breathe deeply.
The peace and joy that floods our souls is worth the cost of becoming His friend.
Committing to Him daily, our thoughts are His as He leads so completely.
His plans and purposes are now ours as our thoughts plan our ways to blend.
No longer lost in a web of meaningless existence, there is no need to pretend.
Giving praise and thanksgiving, we breathe in deeply, His presence, so sweetly.
