looked out my office window and reflected on life.
The 50 foot trees were bare as it was January so the movement of many sparrows
flying from limb to limb; pecking here and there as if there was some food there for them. Perhaps there was! Suddenly I was
filled with the easiness they flew without fear of falling. It had to be an innate knowledge they possessed for I have never
heard of first grade class for sparrows.
How do they know they will not fall? They just know it. We as humans want to
serve God and know He loves us. It is when we turn aside from Him our trouble starts. When we lose our connection to God we
fall. A noted author, theologian, and historian, Jeffery Burton Russell wrote a book which touched on this subject where he
said on the first paragraph of chapter one of the book A History Of Heaven by Jeffrey Burton Russell, “A normal human
being longs for three things that cannot be obtained in this life: an understanding of self, an understanding of others, and
an understanding of the cosmos. We cannot be sufficient unto ourselves. We are created for the connection with others, for
the connection with the cosmos, for the dynamic connection among ourselves and with God. When we ask for connection, we are
often met with silence. But if we listen, the silence sings to us.” In reflection to all this I wrote the below poem:
THE SINGING SILENCE OF GOD
By Frank Henrich October 3, 2009
Oh connection where are you?
I search for you in my church,
I search for you with my friends,
I search for you in my prayers,
I listen earnestly to the silence.
Is it not enough that I seek
Connection to answer my questions?
"No," you say, "It is not enough."
Then what is wanted of me?
not enough, what is?
Oh, I am so troubled and sad,
My intellect demands of my mind,
to who I am and why, yes
Why am I here and exist for what?
I am told I must connect, but with whom?
Colleges intellectuals speak out
But they have a dozen different views,
Which one holds the
answer for me?
Then one day God threw me a curve ball
And revealed to me that He is spirit.
Yes, God showed me in a way
That I cannot deny His existence,
And this world I felt I understood,
My world expanded its horizons
Into a world that is spirit controlled.
said, “You need to connect,”
But how do you connect with a Spirit,
And my mind said, "I
needed a new start."
So I studied the Bible and prayed a lot
Oh at last how my spirit found rest.
For if I live a life pleasing
To Jesus my Lord, He will send
The Holy Spirit to dwell
And I can attend, free of cost,
The College of the Holy Spirit.
So I enrolled
and what classes!
The teaching was outstanding
And most of all, came the data
That shows how
to properly connect,
Praise God for His wonderful school.
For now the silence sings to me,
Its tune is carried by flowing grace
That bathes my spirit and body
With constant state of peace and joy,
My character remains but strengthened.
Oh, what a mystical union!
A heaven here
on this Earthly globe,
Yes, I found the connection,
If you are still searching, please hear,
to Jesus, the true connection.
