I Hear a Whisper

I hear a whisper
Is that Your voice?
Should I listen?
I have a choice
I could ignore
Go back to sleep
But sleep won’t come
Your voice is deep

You have a work
For me to do
You don’t need me
But I need You
To guide the way
To give the light
To fight the battle
To show what’s right
To keep me humble
To not think more
Of me, me, me
Please don’t keep score
Of all the times
I chose my way
Chose not to listen
Not to obey

No, You forgave
Once again
The debt’s been paid
You died for sin
Of all the world
Of everyone
When Jesus died
Your only Son
To set us free
From every chain
That dares to bind
That tries to reign

You replaced
That prison cell
With arms of love
A refreshing well
Of living water
And pastures green
Eternal life
A heavenly scene
For all of those
Who make the choice
To follow You
To heed Your voice

So, help me hear
To recognize
With open ears
And open eyes
To keep in mind
Lord, what You say
Obey the Word
Whispered today

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
