My Silence Serves as a Lesson.
Updated: Dec 31, 2021
Even when you cannot sense me, I am here. I hear every prayer and see every sigh of your heart. I know every thought you think. I am with you right now. I promised to never leave you. It may feel like I’ve stepped back, left you without direction or the sound of my voice, but I haven’t.
My seeming silence is a lesson. A reminder to be still. To find me by embracing the quiet I want your mind to find. It isn’t that I’m not speaking. Often, I’m just speaking in a way you don’t recognize. Pay attention to the cues of life all around you. I speak in many ways and through many different instruments.
Remember the countless times I led you to an answer in surprising ways. I know how to get you where you need to go. I have never failed you, and I never will fail you. Always remember that I am faithful. If all you hear is silence, yield to that silence. You will find me there.
"I am standing in absolute stillness, silent before the one I love, waiting as long as it takes for him to rescue me. Only God is my Savior, and he will not fail me. For he alone is my safe place. His wrap-around presence always protects me as my champion defender." Psalm 62:5–6
