My Father He speaks to those in despair.
His patient persistence brings comfort and care.
My Father He speaks to the child who seeks Him.
He makes Himself known to the humble within.
My Father He speaks in the depth of the night.
He whispers His knowledge through the stars in the sky.
My Father He speaks in the middle of pain.
He comforts the weak, the afflicted and strained.
If you are His child and wonder today,
if your Father can speak – please stop and pray.
Then sit in the silence and open His Word.
Repent and seek Him – for there He is heard.
Lord, teach my heart to listen to You as You speak!
Help me to not only be sure to hear Your Word,
But more importantly obey what You say.
(Pictures, Prayer and Poetry, Heidi Viars, 2016)
