There are times I come to find that I wish I had listened more deeply and with much thought before acting instead of always being caught in reacting. It seems a lesson that I continually learn. The mistakes made have such a huge price. If only I might have discerned first?
Listening To God by Michael Romani Declaring that you're Christian But living for your own thrill Is what brings contra-distinction Of choosing your own and not His will Getting caught up in the wrong flow Instead of heeding counsel on how to go Listening or just doing all of the talking Makes the difference in saying and walking Taken in as to how and what we must refrain Makes the difference of peace or living strain To do this we must identify His clear voice This is how we come to our best right choice In so doing, we determinately make our stand Heeding with every breath, His Holy command Checking our decisions for scriptural consistency Resisting all else if it isn't in honesty Obeying God often takes us beyond human reason Requiring us to stand outside our season But, God knows us beyond our earthly desire Often testing our mettle by His burning fire The Holy Spirit feeds our contemplation Delivering us to walk by our fleshly temptation Challenging our faith and calling us to be brave Still, in the end, we know that Jesus saves God's calling gives us each the power to do In each intimate moment lived by me and you God does not shout but does shine brightly Speaking with the truth to be heard quietly We must walk humbly before the blessed Trinity Meekly heard in the night spent so silently It's there when we listen so as to learn That we come to grow and wisely discern (c) August 12, 2019 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
