This Is Just The Way It Is

The sun can rise and shine brightly without your consent.
The waves send water to fall upon the mountains.
Flowers and weeds emerge out of the most minuscule seeds.

The moon always travels across the sky, seen or not.
Snow melts and freezes into ice, then melts some more.
Baby birds open their mouths wide for worms.

If all this can happen without your approval

What would happen if you loosened your grip?
Let down your hair?
Spoke no words, but listened intently?

"And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you."
Mark 4:24 ESV
