Joy in Your Presence

Heavenly Father, I have Joy in your presence

The morning breeze wafts over me 
The waterfall softly calms  
The sounds of the summer birds so peaceful
Be still my mind, listen

The flowers gently rustle
A gecko steals across the stone
A bee buzzes in the bush
Be still my mind, listen

A butterfly alights upon a rose
The sunlight plays upon the shimmering water 
The tree tops sway as if to whisper
Be still my mind, listen

The dragonflies dance across the sky
A cardinal's song so playful  
The music of creation awakening  
Be still my mind, listen

Listen for the voice of God!  

I was moved to write this poem as I enjoyed the beauty of my garden. God was evident in everything. 
I always feel His presence in nature. The variety and intricacy of His creation abounds.
It is peaceful. I was delighted.

"Be still and know that I am God..."Psalm 46:10

You have made known to me the path of life:
you fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand Psalm 16:11

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, JOY, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control... - Galatians 5:22-23

To God be the glory
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
Revelation 4:11
