The Birds and Trees

Wisdom is missed

by those

who despise small things…

who declare them insignificant,

fail to recognize

their own blind spots –

and pride,

disguised

as the righteousness of God.

Beware Christian!

You think you hear God-

yet by your own decree

snuff out His voice

in the birds

and trees.

You declare yourself wise

by your own decrees,

but I hear Him full well,

in the birds and trees.

I hear Him full well,

in the birds and trees.

  1. Beautifully said! We – perhaps I mean I/me/myself!! – close out the obvious…God speaks to us in the Birds and the Trees and the small creatures and the streams of water and the deep ocean…and we – I/me/myself – continue to listen for his voice…it is there, my friend; it IS there and I am one who continues to listen for his voice and…ramble on and on and on…and it passes me by. TODAY, I will be OPEN to HEAR HIS VOICE, in the every day beauty of HIM!!

    Thank you for sharing – your beautiful, as usual – words!!
