Dove in the Cleft of the Rock, by Glenda Mills

What better way to celebrate this month of love than to focus on the greatest love story ever–Christ’s love for us, His Bride. Thank you, Glenda Mills!


The Bride of Christ is God’s Dove—
Sheltered in the safety of the cleft of the Rock.

He sings over her,
Invites her to look up
and sing along—
Then picks up
a sweet tune,
putting a smile on her face
and joy in her heart.

It may be a secret place,
yet it’s known to Him.
It may be a steep place—
but directed by Him.
It may be a deep valley,
but He promised
never to leave your side.

Sometimes our Lord
calls us from
clamorous voices that
vie for our attention—
Only then do
we hear
His voice alone.

  1. Thank you Vonda for this opportunity. I love your picture of the dove…so fitting for the poem. May our Lord be glorified in our lives as we share the gifts he graciously gives us!

  2. Glenda, this is beautiful. I especially liked this,
    “Sometimes our Lord
    calls us from
    clamorous voices that
    vie for our attention—
    Only then do
    we hear
    His voice alone.”

    This is so true. And when the voices are clamoring for attention, that’s when I have to learn to be still and listen for His sweet whispers. Thank you so much for sharing with us. You’re a blessing.
