Turn Down the Noise #89

 

Worrying

If You were hungry
Would we give You food?
If You were thirsty
Would we give You drink?
If You were a stranger
Would we let You in?
What would be the song we’d sing to You
When they’re in need?
Would it be an empty hallelujah
To the King?
Turn down the music
Turn down the noise
Turn up Your voice, oh God
And let us hear the sound
Of people broken
Willing to love
Give us Your heart, oh God
A new song rising up
And if You were naked
Would we give You clothes?
If You were an orphan
Would we give our home?
And if You were in prison
Would we visit You?
What would be the song we’d sing to You
When they’re in need?
Would it be an empty hallelujah
To the King?
Turn down the music
Turn down the noise
Turn up Your voice, oh God
Let us hear the sound
Of people broken
Willing to love
Give us Your heart, oh God
A new song rising up
Let it be our worship
Let it be our true religion
In this world but not of it
Holding on to our confession
Let it be our worship
Let it be our true religion
In this world but not of it
Holding on to our confession
Turn down the music
Turn down the noise
Turn up Your voice, oh God
Let us hear the sound
Of people broken
Willing to love
Give us Your heart, oh God
A new song rising
A new song rising
New song rising up

It happened at the bedside of my dying father. In the soft quiet of our conversations, he told me to be my own man. He helped me to recognize ‘the noise of the world’ so I could learn to stop listening to it. He encouraged me to see my weaknesses and illuminate my strengths. For the first time since I was a child, I was able to hear the voice of my spirit. It told me what I value and how I ought to live my own life.

I believe in a silence that allows me to stop paying attention to the world around me and start listening to my own heart. In the years since my father’s death, I try daily to hear the silence amid the noise of career, children, war, recession and success.

Andrew Flewelling

 

“All creativity requires some stillness. Your sense of inner peace depends on spending some of your life energy in silence to recharge your battery, remove tension and anxiety, reacquaint you with the joy of knowing God, and feel closer to all humanity. Silence reduces fatigue and allows you to experience your own creative juices. Ask in silence, listen in silence, and let silence be the jumping-off point for becoming one with the creative force of the universe.”  ~Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
