What whisper should we believe?

Listen and you will hear

many voices calling you,

sometimes seducing

other times attacking —

What prejudice do we bring

to the chatter?  I need

the quiet, sure voice

of discernment — 

no trendy, feel-good

speech, no political

correctness of any

leaning, no building up

by tearing down, no 

self-made illusions; I 

long to settle into truth; 

we may be called

into some uncertainty,

when we don’t know

all of the answers, 

but when we know 

the One who made 

the oceans and mountains, 

who controls the vastness

of space upon space,

we can rest, discerning

that we are His, and He

knew yesterday, knows

today, has always known

tomorrow.  Shut out

the noise and sit

at the feet of the One

whose truth stands, 

settled and finished,

continuous in all

mercy and grace.
