Spirit Whispers


For those of you that are new to my blog, today I am resuming
a series called Spirit Whispers.
For me and others I find that we don't take the time to sit quietly
and just listen.  I encourage you each Monday to take that time.
I often run a series for awhile on Monday's and this one sits well with
me for now.  When the time comes for a closure, I usually have a give away.
Today's sharing is the words from a song we sometimes sing at the church that
I attend, but I think the words can touch the heart of you too.
Sit with a cup of tea and a few moments of silence as you read.

Teach Me to Stop and Listen
by Ken Medema

Teach me to stop and listen.
Teach me to center down.
Teach me the use of silence.
Teach me where peace is found.

Teach me to hear your calling.
Teach me to search your word.
Teach me to hear in silence
Things I have never heard.

Teach me to be collected.
Teach me to be in tune.
Teach me to be directed.
Silence will end so soon.

Then when it's time for moving,
Grant it that I may bring
To every day and moment
Peace from a silent spring.
