“Behold, what I have seen to be good and fitting is to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all the toil with which one toils under the sun the few days of his life that God has given him, for this is his lot.” ~ Ecclesiastes 5:18


My daughter, I ask you

When you go about your day,

Moving here to there

Upon your pathway,


Remember to take time

To hear wind in the trees,

To feel the pure delight

Of a soft springtime breeze;


To smell the fragrant flowers

That grow in the fields,

To enjoy the fruit

That My provision yields;


To marvel at the birds

As they soar in flight;

To gaze upon the stars

As they sparkle at night;


To smile at the butterflies

As they dance to and fro,

To rejoice in the roses

As they blossom and grow;


To play with your children

In their carefree games,

To delight in the music

Of calling their names;


To be still in My presence,

To know I am here,

To celebrate the truth

That I am always near;


Please, My daughter,

I ask of you these things,

That you may experience fully

All My grace brings.


So remember to take time

To hear wind in the trees,

To feel the warmth of My love

Bringing you to your knees;


Yes, my daughter, I ask you

When you go about your day,

Savor every sweet step

Of your purposeful pathway.

    This is a beautiful poem. This brings to mind Psalm 46:10 – Be still and know that I am God. I think being still and listening for God’s voice is one of the hardest things for most of us busy people. However, I know that hearing His voice is so important and will propel us much farther than any activity on our part.

    Have a Victorious Day!

      My sweet sister,

      Heartfelt thanks for your heart-warming comment! Yes, how important it is for us to be still; in the stillness, in the silence, we hear God’s voice. This can seem like a tall order for our busy lives, and yet – as you wrote – the rewards are immeasurable! God can indeed us propel far more powerfully than we can with our own efforts.

      Marianne, many thanks again for your loving encouragement and your faithful heart to God!

      Gratitude and Joy in Jesus,
