To-Do List

The quiet fills my brain.

Pushing in on all sides, it laughs at me.

Laughs at all the things I have to do, but as of now are still undone.

The silence is loud and screams at me…

to do and do, no time for you.

Guilt chimes in as I contemplate

my day’s, week’s, month’s to-do list.

As the quiet threatens me,

shakes its fist at me,

I hear Your voice…almost as low as the quiet.

The quiet noise retreats at His rebuke and I.choose.Him.

I rest.
