The silence is overwhelming, it pierces my ears
I hear a light wind rustle through the evergreen trees
The snow gently swirls downward in the cold air
In this temple of God’s creation, I feel his gentle hand upon me
I feel his gentle grace, his love surrounding me
It is a moment of solitude away from a turbulent world
A world where a storm rages within humanity
A world where people deny your existence, yet secretly hope you truly exist
Outside the noise and confusion of that worldly place
I find this escape into your creation
It fills me with your spirit of hope, love and truth
Against the cold chill of this world
I see your light piercing the darkness; it warms my soul
Your light gently touches my face, it tells me to trust you and your way
The trampled snow ahead seems the way to go
But God you tell me this is not so
“The path I’ve put you on is full of troubles and struggles.”
He points toward the deep snow, pure white
I do not know where this unmarked path goes
But I do know its ultimate destination
There we will bask in the presence of God’s glory
But for now I must press on, clinging to his hope, trusting him
Letting my faith in God guide me along this uncharted path
“He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth — the Lord God Almighty is his name.” — Amos 4:13

This is so artful and thoughtful. I have been feeling the pull and the need for His Light more lately in this raging storm. He often speaks peace to my heart. But sometimes we just have to trust that He is there, too, walking with us.
In the midst of a storm, sometimes it is helpful to find a place of momentary refuge. Even a short, quiet walk alone can help us better hear what God is telling us. Praying you will feel the peace of Christ. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Blessings.
Amazing..!!! Good job. Keep it up..👍🏻👍🏻
Wow… just incredible!
Thank you. I continue to be amazed at God’s patience in working with us; his effort to draw us to himself.
He IS faithful and true
