Constantly Calling

Constant

Psalm 141:3-4
New Living Translation (NLT)

3 Take control of what I say, O Lord,
and guard my lips.
4 Don’t let me drift toward evil
or take part in acts of wickedness.
Don’t let me share in the delicacies
of those who do wrong.


The Dripping

Ever beating
At its slow incessant pace
Ever interrupting
Though I try to give it no place

My mind tries its hardest
To shut out its persistent voice
Yet no matter how hard I resist
It seems to have no choice

Its message is relentless
Its method most inhumane
If I have to listen
It will drive me quite insane

And whether from a faucet
Or a nearby television set
The ever constant ridicule
Still fills me with regret

And it’s not just there but everywhere
A thousand voices filled with spite
From the radio to social media
They continue day and night

Perhaps one day I’ll just pull the plug
And go completely off the grid
Out there among the birds and bees
God’s voice cannot be hid

Father,

Guard our hearts and minds against the voices of the darkness. They cry out all day and night to lead us astray. Cover us in Your mighty wings and hold us tight in Your embrace.

    • Thanks Kandy! I miss seeing him and Gordon each day ( You, too). Those were good days back then, but I believe there are better days yet to come. “Hang in there, Big Clay! May the peace of God fill your home and your hearts.”
