Quiet Call

June 6, 2021 12:27 pm EDT

I went for a walk
On the trail, behind my home,
On the other side of the pond,
Through the new woods,
And heard a song,
Played through my phone.

It said, in essence,
When you’re lost, say,
When you’re scared, say,
When you’re confused, say,
When you feel unsafe, unloved, and
All alone, say,
And with just that little piece
Of a willing heart,
Faith is renewed,
And Jesus hears,
And He comes,
And he heals,?And he LOVES,
The world is okay, again,
At least, for now.

And next time,
You feel a little spent,
You’re at the end of your rope,
You have no energy left,
And precious little…
You don’t have to run,
You don’t have to fall on your face,
You don’t have to recite some beautiful prayer,
But instead,
Say quietly,
With the faith of a lost mouse,
Say quietly,
