Listen

 

So soft, so quiet
I hear Him speak
It’s loud and clear
Deep in my heart

Things I’m afraid of
And want to ignore
But His whispers so loudly
I cannot deny

If I could explain 
It would not be God
If I understood
It would not take faith

And yet, it’s not blind
My eyes clearly see
Not the eyes of the world
But those in my heart

These eyes clearly see
That I really don’t know
Of the plans made for me
By my Father above

The fight in my heart
To obey or to not
Is not something I win
But what I must feel

I feel the fear 
And the doubt
I wonder if God
Really speaks to my heart

There is no explaining
No figuring out
It never makes sense 
In my unconscious mind

God, in His love
Never forces my heart
But holding my hand
Leads my self to the cross

I see my self die
Time and again
To things that I want
Things my self thinks I need

Then I say ‘yes’ 
To the voice in my heart
Not fully knowing
The journey or end

I step out and do
I speak up and say 
Specks of fear still remain 
Not controlling – but there

In my heart speaks that voice
That I know is my God
And I trust the Unknown
And step into His Grace
