Standing at the Water’s Edge

 

Shoe Prints in the Sand

Standing at the water’s edge
Staring at the waves’ rhythmic
Moves – Listening – in silence –
For a voice – a sigh – a moan –
I heard a trickle – the water
At my feet
Gently stirring
The sand –

The only voice I heard was mine –
An utterance floating like music
On air – carrying a message
Unknown – yet the echo
Of which lingered
Like a chorus
Playing over
In my Soul –

Standing at the water’s edge
Staring at the waves’ rhythmic
Moves – Listening – in silence –
For a voice – a sigh – a moan –
I heard a word softly
Spoken – wafting
O’er the water’s
Ebb and flow –

Believe – believe – You won’t be
Disappointed – My promises are real –
Your prayer plays in my ear
A love song – sweet and low –
Sleep quiet now –
Dream happily –
To sandy
Beaches go –

1 Peter 5:6 – The Bible (KJV) – Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Philippians 4:6-7 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Psalm 4:8 –  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
