In Your Presence
help me to listen
to be quiet and still
content in just breathing You in:
and Your peace.
Fill my lungs to their full capacity with Your breath
and diffuse throughout my entire being
until every space in me is occupied by You
and all that can leave my mouth as I exhale
are words that are unmistakably Yours.
There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.

I have often looked at the huge cables, the monstrous wires, of a suspension bridge, and thought, ‘If somebody was strong enough to pluck it, I wonder what it would sound like?’ To a termite looking at the great strings on a bass fiddle, it would say, ‘Boy, I wonder what that sounds like?’ But you see there are people who can pluck it. And the Bible says there’s a chord in your life which is as thick and huge as a suspension cable, and nobody, nothing, no message but the gospel message is strong enough to pluck it. But once it’s plucked, once it starts to reverberate, the entire heart reverberates with the sounds of joy.
