Silence broken

Its been long and tiring for those of God’s children who long awaited their messiah. Silence kept their sometimes faltering hearts awake. Could you imagine what they had to go threw without the holy spirit inside them? Seems isolated, forgotten, as if all life and hope began to sit. Frozen shards of sin had covered what was left. Silence’s heart beat kept in time as the clock counted down the minutes of its messiah. Silence ticks, ticks, ticks… Crack, A voice of an Angle broke the silence announcing the for runner. Fear leading to faith, an announcement of a son. One who will be filled with the holy spirit, makes way of the Lord with prepared people. His name is John, Silence ticks, ticks, ticks…. Crack, An Angles voice is heard again, Fear leading to faith. A favored woman and a son to be born of a virgin. The word slave was worn as a badge of honor, may it be done according to your word.

Silence ticks, ticks, ticks… A righteous man who will not shame, but divorce is swelling in his brain. An Angel greeted in his sleep, take Mary as your wife. Conceived by the holy spirit, saving people from their sins. Silence ticks, ticks, ticks…Crack A baby leaped inside, Elizabeth lets out a cry. Blessings are passed and joy was proclaimed. Silence ticks, ticks, ticks…Crack his name is John, fear leading to faith. Zechariah prophesied, praise the Lord. Salvation and redemption echo the words spoken before. Silence ticks, ticks ticks…

Years of silence, hearts were aching. A long awaited savoir, a long awaited pressure about to shatter. One by one moments left cracks in the glass of time. The clock that kept time of the Messiah, was coming to an end. A build up of time wanting out of its cage, it was the silence that grew into a victorious announcement. Silence ticks, ticks ,ticks…Shatters in Bethlehem a nobody town, there was no room for a king. The savoir of the world came humbly in a stable. Silence follows the arrival, the shock and impact makes the world take a breath. Glory to God in the highest heavens, and peace on earth. Angels announce His presence to the lowly shepherds. Fear leading to faith, a visit to Mary and Joseph. Praising God for all He had done.

The sound starts to seep deep into the soil, He is here. He is a voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way for the Lord; make His path straight! Every valley will be filled, and every mountain and hill will be made low. The crooked will become straight, the rough ways smooth; and everyone will see the salvation of God. The silence is broken.

-R.D. Jess

I am a lover of writings and over the years I have collected a handful of poems and stories I have written. The more I wrote the more I realized I should do something with it, besides putting it in a box.
