Discovering Extraordinary Grace in an Ordinary Life

Listen to the Whisper

There’s a whisper you can hear

if you quiet yourself

your mind

your world.

It begs you to slow down

to savor life

the moment

the real.

It’s not loud and demanding

like everything else

everyone else

everywhere else.

It calls quiet

and pulls at places forgotten

unknown

ignored.

Listening to that tiny voice

feels like weakness

irresponsibility

failure.

Because everything around you

demands pieces of time

thought

you.

But you were not called

to a life of chaos

frantic

running.

The very soul of your being

is designed for peace

calm

rest.

Even when the whole world

turns all around

raging

crying out.

There is a simple call

to the innermost part

your heart

your soul.

To find that place

in the storm

the battle

the day-to-day.

That place that beckons

for you to slow down

find calm

find rest.

In that deep place

the world can spin

pull you

scream.

But you will not

fall into chaos

into worry

into strife.

You will stand firm

on the cornerstone of peace

stillness

rest.
