In the Still of the Night

In the still of the night…


But not alone.


But not deafening.

In the still of that night…

A baby’s cry

Shattered the silence,

Set rescue in motion,

Continued the Father’s plan,

Placed redemption and reconciliation in reach –

God and man.

A thrill of hope

That separation would be no more

That the humble would see their need

That the need would be met in only one,

This One –


The shepherds ran

The wise men sought Him

Our greatest joy is to do the same.

Our greatest hope is to see Him, believe Him, embrace Him.

Our greatest need is to love Him and love Him more.

And, in the silence, the quiet


Be still

And know that He is God.
