by Mark Weinrich

There is an inner voice
that sounds like mine,
revealing new thoughts,
giving clarity, encouragement,
discernment as when to wait
and when to seize the opportunity.

I sense the Holy Spirit
sowing peace, where once
the chaos of my waywardness 
produced weeds. I know the Lord
is renewing and transforming
my mind, teaching me first
to listen and perceive, then
to fearlessly act. 

Though gratitude, I am cultivating
awareness of His presence
understanding His guidance
through the Word and the wonders 
of His creative majesty. And more 
than anything I love the witness of 
His Spirit, who tells me I am
a child beloved, but not just
a child, a servant with the need
for sensitivity so I can hear and
become all He has planned
for me.
