Day 4- Just Soak In It

Each Saturday I will provide you with inspirational reading- Scripture, song lyrics, poetry or some other devotional reading.  Treat the words like a hot tub.  You don't have to DO anything; just soak in them and let them wash over you. Stay WIDE OPEN to what God has to say to you. Today's words come from Lois Cheney's 1969 devotional classic God Is No Fool.
"Be still and know that I AM God."
The hymns rise and fall.
The organ lifts and uplifts.
The choir is practiced solemnity focuses its praise.
Standing at the sound of prayers, we hear the chants of Scripture fill the nave.
The sermon adds its one-voice contribution.
All, all in reverent noise.
The meeting turns on Christ.
The conversation patters to Christ.
The laughter smiles with Christ.
The daily devotional drowns out the Christ.
All, all in reverent noise.
The first bird is heard.
The baby's cry is heard.
The embarrassed cough is heard.
Who is silent?
Who is waiting for Jesus?
Who is listening to God?
"Be still and know that I AM God."
