Stay Not Silent

Wisdom in His WillStay not in silence,
allow faith to rise;
speak of His promise,
true hope realized.
For the time is now,
our calling is clear;
speak always in truth,
so others may hear.
Sometimes a challenge,
or a fearful thing;
we’re called to stand tall,
His love we must bring.
If we do not speak,
with our words and deeds;
how will those searching,
find Him who meets needs?
Let love lead the way,
as we follow God;
may His path be plain,
as in trust we trod.
Rise up now dear ones,
do you hear His call?
Let our hands and heart,
show His love to all.

(Responding to Esther 4:14)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You love all people, and Your heart is such that You do not want even one to perish. Thank You that You call each of us to be a part of Your great plan, that we may partner with You to show those who know You not, the depth and heights and width of Your vast love for all. Forgive us for our fears and our silence – both in word and deed, and help us to rise up to be Your hands and heart to those in need. Thank You that for all who hope in You, we are where we are for such a time as this. May many come to know You through our word and deed, and may Your love and light be what people see. Amen.

  1. So much truth for us . . . letting our hearts and hands be used by God . . . we never know when someone will be in need of these and we must be ready to give them both for God’s glory to be seen

  2. Perfect words associated with Esther and her calling. God bless.
