By Ken L. Birks
We come into
this world naked and innocent as babes
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.
Amid all that clutters, a still
small voice speaks with such difference.
Where did it come from? What was it
that spoke with such significance?
Speaking with such warmth, it came amid
turmoil and unease.
With hearts of
expectation, we wait until It comes
again, so divine.
When it comes, it
must be embraced fully in the stillness
Oh, that it could be
captured – that brief moment with such
Coming as a beam of light,
the voice points to a new path to
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 focused, a cross stands in
the path that must be followed.
voice speaks with such clarity,
explaining the meaning of the cross.
With understanding, we embrace it fully
before making further progress.
Tasting the sweetness coming from
obeying the voice, we now trust.
With peace from obedience that floods,
other voices are hushed.
How do we
embrace something representing
humiliation and suffering?
it, we carry it everywhere we go, His
voice, now we trust.
Oh, the thrill
of adventures as He leads us onward,
With confidence, unafraid
of what's ahead, forward we thrust.
Surprisingly, all burdens and the
cares that weighed down are lifted.
With our sins added to the weight, 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, now acquitted.
continues to whisper, “Follow Me and
cast all of your cares upon Me.”
peace and joy that floods are worth the
cost of becoming His friend.
longer lost in confusion, His cross
daily, we willingly embrace so freely.
Knowing His voice leads to
adventures of faith and love, we breathe
Committing to Him daily, our
thoughts are His as He leads so
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's no
need to pretend.
thanksgiving, we breathe in deeply, His
presence, so sweetly.
