IN A NOISY WORLD OF TALK AND OPINIONS
We live in a noisy world, surrounded by 24 hour news. Non-stop talking and opinions pour forth, adding anxiety, despair, and fear. How do we find truth and peace? God has promised to provide us with hope, wisdom and discernment; if only we turn to Him and seek Him. That is what triggered my writing this poem. We need to turn off the gadgets, open His word and sit a while each day with Him in prayer.
How Can I Know What’s Really True?
I listened to the news today
My heart so heavy, now I pray
Dear Father, please, I ask of you
How can I know what’s really true?
They talk and talk incessantly
Until the truth I cannot see
But Lord, I know Your Word is true
And so, Your truth I do pursue
Turn off the noise, turn off the sound
Before in words my heart is drowned
So, let me sit here at your side
Safe in your love, I can abide
For all man’s talk can never heal
The hate, the sin that is so real
You are the only one who can
Transform the heart of evil man
And so, I humbly bow my head
Filled by hope, Your words I’ve read
Your Joy, Your love to fill each day
Protecting me along the way
The pains and sorrows You erase
Each time I gaze upon Your face
Your Glory shining oh so bright
Into the darkness of my night
So, fill my heart with You today
That I might know just what to say
To lead someone to see Your Son
The truth, the victory He has won
So, one by one help them to see
Their only hope to be set free
From all the hate and bigotry
Was purchased there on Calvary
And lift the darkness o’er this land
Your light to shine, that truth may stand
You are our only hope today
For this I bow to you to pray
Deuteronomy 4: 29-31,35,39
But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee
Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him.
Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Take time today to seek His word. He is truth and light. Spend time alone with Him everyday and let His peace, love, hope and joy fill your hearts. Pray for our nation. Our greatest weapon is prayer.
