One Man’s Elephant book II

When God Speaks

God does not speak

             in a thunderstorm

             in a hurricane

             in a tornado.

God does not speak

             in an earthquake

             in a forest fire

             in a volcano.

God speaks

             in a whisper

             in a quiet breeze

             in a mother’s kiss.

God speaks

             in a sunset

             in a flower

             in a dew drop.

God does not speak in a shouting preacher

God speaks in a still moment of quiet.

When you want to hear God’s message

             be still, be quiet, listen.

If you cannot hear God speaking

             perhaps you are not listening

             perhaps this is when God is listening.
