Still a Small Voice

You yearned for fulfillment

but there is no meaning
in the light of your eyes

just thoughts whispered in the sand.

For you ripped apart the law written in your heart
and made for yourself an idol

out of your own desires.

You grew weary and pretended
that everything is alright

closing your mind ever so deeply
to the storm stirring in your heart.

A feeling you can’t loose.
A yearning you can’t ignore.

For you never felt at home in the muck.

Still a small voice that whispers
into your heart:

You were made for more.

A small voice that trembles
through your bones

Tear down all you got.

For you are not the sums
of your failures…

but the sum the Father’ love for you*.

    1. Dear Anne,

      Thank you for visiting!

      The concept behind this prose is that today men has divorce themselves from the law that God has written in their hearts and instead have made subjectivism their own moral code. What feels write is the ultimate arbitrary between what is good and what is bad. I kept thinking about this subject for a while and decided to write about. Despite this self center arrogance God still does not abandon us, for he keeps knocking at the door of our hearts, hence the raging storm in our hearts…

      Cheers,

      Caleb

      1. God knows those who are His Calab and those who will never be His, He knows all things from the beginning till the end, we are His by His foreknowledge of our heart repentance and He knows not one of us will reject Jesus which is the unforgivable sin, how can we be saved if we reject the One who saves us.

        But not one of us who are Redeemed will be lost or He would not have chosen us to be conformed into the image of Jesus.

        Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

        Titus 2:13-15 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ Who gave Himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

        2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

        1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

        Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne.
