Silence Speaks Louder Than Words - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

sometimes God makes himself
so obvious we feel he has been
conversing with us for a very long time
before we actually lend him an ear and a heart

for God i think silence speaks louder than words
for when he really makes himself known
silence thickens to such an extraordinary volume
what is there, minus the silence and us,
is really the Almighty

    It is easy to lose God in busy-ness of daily life and its noisy crowds. Sometimes, we need to slow the pace of our worlds to recognize that it is in the stillness of our lives that God speaks His message most clearly to our hearts. (Report) Reply
