Quieting My Heart: Just Come

"I am
the Bread of Life;
whoever comes to Me
shall not hunger,
and whoever believes in Me
shall never thirst."
(John 6:35)

It's as simple
as pausing,
taking a moment, 
lifting our eyes to Him,
quieting our hurried pace,
coming close to listen
to Him.

"Why would we abandon
what is simple, available,
and sustaining
for what is cumbersome,
hard, and heavy?
Why do we try to fill 
our need with what is
ultimately empty?"
(Shelly Miller)

Lord, may today
be a day of pausing,
of quieting our hearts
even amidst our work,
and of coming close
to listen and learn,
to be loved by You.
