The Whisper

I heard the whisper
In my spirit, it felt wrong
But then the world echoed
It louder and long 

And louder and louder
And louder, it rang
Bombarding my mind
Invading my space

Transforming my thinking
Attacking my mind
Encouraging me to leave
What I valued behind

The battle raged on
Between Truth, between lie
Between what my heart taught
Between wrong, between right

And then, in the quiet
Another Voice spoke
Tenderly, lovingly
Gently awoke

The spirit of Truth
He had placed within me
The Almighty Creator
Who created – me

He whispered, He loved me
The thought whelmed my mind
He knew that I longed
To be loved my whole life 

The aching was deep
He felt my pain seer
He waited patiently
‘Til I welcomed Him near 

Then I turned to listen
Let my words be few
Honoring God
Was my duty, I knew

He said, I have a plan
Better than you’ve heard
A plan for My creation
Revealed in My Word

I created them
Man and woman, long ago
Made for each other
A love that would grow 

Imperfect in union
In an imperfect place
Where now lies abound
And heresies race 

To confuse your mind
To conquer your soul
But where I long to heal
And make you whole 

Yes, I long to heal you
And make you whole!

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
