Still Your Soul In Silence

This song spoke volumes to me today, so I thought I'd share it. I hope it will speak to you in your own area of life where you need to be reminded to still your soul in silence. For me it is an uncertain future and an inability to control the timing and details of what is ahead for us. I listened to this song and read the lyrics a couple of times to get all that God had in it for me. This weekend I heard from friends and family members who are struggling with a variety of stressors and life issues. This song is dedicated to the ones I love. : )

Still Your Soul In Silence
by Don Francisco

In the lives of those that follow there is going to come a time
When rhythm starts to stumble and singsong swallows rhyme
When imaginations crumble, false foundations turn to dust
Towers fall to piles of stones and girders into rust
’Till you let the blood of Jesus wash the rubble from your mind
And your eyes again can see the one you almost left behind
When theology's in tatters and reason is absurd
Still your soul in silence and listen for His word

So many turns, so many ways, so many voices cry
Standing at the crossroads watching time go flashing by
Indecision paralyzes, it's the fear of choosing wrong
But waiting is a step itself, and your wondering too long
So again you search the scripture, and again you ask your friends
But last of all the One who’s known the beginning from the end
In the clamor and confusion and the blindness of your choice
Still your soul in silence, and listen for His voice

Rome is full of ruins, Babylon is gone
The temple's just a memory that some still dwell upon
But deep within a place that sword and veil had once denied
A tree of life is growing, living waters flow beside
Far beyond all human reason and words upon a page
His glory lightens all who fret their hour upon this stage
To know Him is our freedom, to hear Him is release
To fix your heart and soul on Him is rest and perfect peace
