When God Says Hush

When God says, “Hush, what’s your rush?”
interrupting my mental notes,
I push back my hair-
respond, “Are you there?”
turning back to my long list of quotes
When God pushes back the drapes of my day
allowing me a glimpse
of our walk today
gently I nudge my agenda His way
awaiting an approving nod.
When God tip toes into my morn,
I hardly know He’s there-
but through the blinds
dust specked rays quietly reflect the dawn
When God slips quietly into my night
starlight shimmers
twinkling light
I stare heavenward
adoring the sight
When God says “Hush”
I submit to His pause
and sneak off to our secret place
behind closed doors
and let Him minister
again in awe
through tears, fears and so much more-
When God says “Hush”,
I realize
there’s more I need than meets the eyes
and in His sovereign grace,
I wait.
Upon His lowly estate I rest,
trusting at the end of the test
that as He is, I will be
strengthened by that which I cannot see
But all to Him is needful,
pain and beauty intermingle
through and through
bringing His glory
like morning dew.
