Listen to your heart, your spirit For the conscious revealing truth The wisdom that comes from heeding God’s instruction, His correction And His everlasting word, the Bible Listen to the way He reveals to you All the insight into a living devotion Assurance that whatever you go through You can find the answers in your soul Where He guides, instructs and assures Listen to His still, small voice – the light That reflects His image, His Holy Spirit Who welcomes you to praise and pray In silence, in noise – wherever you may be Yearning for God to take notice of your need Listen to Him through the scriptures Who reveal His heart and open the way To receiving guidance and direction Through sorrows, joys and everything With promises for your benefit and help Listen to the prudence of a heavenly Father One who knows your deepest thoughts Your secret dreams and all you believe And find encouragement through His gift Of reassurance and grace, inspiration and faith Listen to your heart – listen to your intent Do you hope to win or do you hope to give a gift? Is your heart in the right place when you pray? Do you hope to honor God and honor the faith? Do you breathe worship through it all? Praise God Listen to your soul, the part of you who knows He is with you always – forever leading you on Through sadness and sorrow, through joy and hope Into the moments when you know you will discover The answers to prayers and faith that is alive Listen… listen.. to the still, small voice of God Who looks past your anger and shame, your worst To the center of your heart where He sees you As you were meant to be seen… filled with a love That dances and sings, love that was given by Him Listen to your heart and believe in a love that is alive Guiding your thoughts toward intimacy with the Lord Who knows you need His love more than anything And hopes you will come to Him through everything Secure in the worship of One who is the light of your soul Listen and know… God is still in control 1 Peter 3:16 KJV 16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
