hard of hearing? January 27, 2009

Filed under: blah blah blah — daughterofdestiny @ 19:04

Once there was a man who dared God to speak
Burn the bush like You did for Moses, God
And I will follow
Collapse the walls like You did for Joshua, God
And I will fight
Still the waves like You did on Galilee, God
And I will listen
So the man sat by a bush, near a wall, close to the sea
and waited for God to speak
And God heard the man, so God answered
He sent fire, not for a bush, but for a church
He brought down a wall, not of brick, but of sin
He stilled a storm, not of the sea, but of a soul
And God waited for the man to respond
And God waited………
And God waited……….
And God waited………
But because the man was looking at bushes, not hearts;
bricks not lives,
seas not souls,
he decided that God had done nothing
Finally he looked to God and asked, ‘God, have You lost Your power?’
And God looked at the man and said, ‘Man, have you lost your hearing?’

27th december 2008 – somehow, felt oh-so-tired after christmas. so, was yearning for some truly relaxing time with few things in my mind – books, cocktail, gus & beach.
