The Chirping Bird (Poem)

Updated on May 16, 2015

Today upon arising I was hesitant to pray,

A voice of negativity conveniently, stood in my way,

Immediately, I told myself I’ve just got to give God praise

Soon as I did, The voice of negativity did subside!

The next thing I heard, to my surprise!

Was a chirping bird!

Realizing the vastness that the Creator is, and

How limitless He is in when, and how He speaks,

I was intrigued that He chose this special way of saying,

Not to forget to pray, and praise first,

Or the next voice you hear, may not be the chirping bird.

Give thanks and praise.

      Thanks for dropping by. This poem is precious to me as well, the events of it changed my direction to an attitude of prayer.
