Ears to Hear and Hands to Hold

Can we hear the call as we sit in silence in our rooms,
Or do we only hear it in the clamoring of creation?
How do we discern whether the voice calling is true,
Or a lead to a lesser life than we are meant to live?

What is our meter of discernment for the voice of The Almighty;
Will an angel stop my folly, as was done for Abraham?
Some say the only way to perfection is never to do;
Dare I act without a guide for my faith and my feet?

Please give me patience that I may wait for your assignments;
Give me the humility to understand that I cannot act alone.
Give me guides that hear your voice in the clanging of creation,
And hands to hold as I begin anew this journey as your pure child.
