child moment

a little child has
no knowledge
no power
no capacity
no independence
no survival skills
no defenses

and Jesus says

UNLESS you change
and become like a little child
you will not enter

and I have been wondering
how to undo all I have learned
give up all power
empty myself
allow myself to become dependent
be wide open
naked
and vulnerable

and found myself striving
to do this

and the answer was always right in front of me

be still
and know
while being known

it is in His Presence
all but Him
the One and only
is swept away

the noise of the hurricane of busyness
must be stopped
in order
to hear
THE
whisper

the whisper
that causes me
to be
like a child
with my Father

Thank you for this poem. It spoke to my heart... My heart has been breaking from a broken marriage and have been surrounded by God's love...

This poem encouraged me to Just be still and listen.... and God will do the rest! Which gave me so much comfort...

Thank You
