Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living



In stillness, in silence

I sense You are here

In stillness, in silence

Your Voice rings so clear


My thoughts usually run

Ever so fast

To yesterday, tomorrow

To future and past

Yet to still myself

And presently be

Opens my eyes to much 

That I have yet to see


Feeling the breeze, hearing the birds

Smelling the flowers in the air

Seeing the dazzling colors around

To Nature’s bounty none can compare


In the stillness, in the silence

In the presence of here and now

I hear, see, feel and know God

As only stillness can allow


The moments often pass in a flurry

A parade of weeks, months and years

Yet in the pause of the moment

My soul feels God and also hears


The Voice of the Great I AM

Speaking clearly, strongly and true

Awaking me to the Eternal Now

And my spirit to joyfully renew


So in this stillness, in this silence

I celebrate the closeness of myself to Thee

With song, with Psalm, with prayer

With uplifted arms or on bended knee


Yes, I will celebrate the moment

The very present Now

I will experience it fully

And in it I will allow


The Lord to speak

And to touch my very heart

I am His beloved child

His treasured work of art


Our God is Sovereign

Yesterday, tomorrow and today

Let not those precious moments

Slip by us and flitter away


Practice presence, practice awareness

Of the precious here and now

Commune with Lord in the stillness

And to Him our heads do bow


As He lifts us to new heights

And we connect with Him more deeply and true

Stillness in God is the key to Eternity

And to celestial promises for me and for you
