Father, you feel so far away,
I’m not sure that my words are right.
All I ask is to feel you near…
Did you hear my prayer last night?
Open your eyes my little one,
Remember the veil was torn apart.
Be still, and know that I am God…
for I am speaking to your heart.
I’ve summoned the wind to join us,
My spirit stirs amidst the breeze.
Look! The branches, they dance about…
Rustling leaves whisper melodies.
Forever and ever I am with you child,
I’m everywhere, and in everything.
Your words need not be perfect…
I know your heart, I hear it sing!
Oh thank you Heavenly Father,
for this song that you’ve given me.
I’ll be back again tomorrow…
to dance beneath our sacred tree.
I wrote this awhile ago, when I was going through what I would call a stagnant season. God felt far away. Things were too quiet and I was getting uneasy. Gil suggested that I look for God in everything, and that even the most mundane could be divine.
I think he was right.
Love you Gil!
