The Maker of Heaven,
Of Earth and the sky
Gives life to His children.
Shows birds how to fly.
Tells the oceans and seas
How far they can come.
Turns them back into clouds
Through rays of the sun.
His knowledge and wisdom
We cannot obtain.
He sees all injustice.
He sees all the pain.
Why trust in your feeble,
When He holds your short life
And He has the plan?
Be quiet and listen
He calls on our lives.
Let’s trust what His Word says.
Let’s obey His voice.
“Father, before the noise of business distracts my attention
from Your constant and holy presence,
calm my heart and draw me near to You.
Show me what You have created me to do.
I know You will equip me
to do the work you have called me to do.
You have not called me to a life of safety,
but to a life of obedience.
Teach me what it means to trust and obey You.”
… where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? …
