Quieting Myself by Raymond A. Foss

Reclaiming a lost discipline
Quieting myself, in the presence of God
letting go of the world
spending time in the word.

Only in quieting myself
able to hear the message for me
calling God to speak
from deep inside of me

Words for our hearts
in each day of our lives
his voice alive in the words
calling to us to hear

Stilling myself
falling into the word
listening for his still small voice
echoing down through time

The words of scripture alive
if only we would see
if only we would hear
their message for our lives
sometimes oh so clear.
