Silent

February 15, 2011 — 4 Comments

There are days where life is just overwhelming.

  • Loved ones are stricken with illness
  • Friends abandon us
  • Jobs are suddenly gone.

In these moments, where it seems as if there’s nothing to say, sometimes the best thing to say is nothing.

Because as we stand before our Holy God, we have to acknowledge that we don’t have the words to even know what to ask.

We must admit that we can’t see the light; we may not even be able to see the tunnel. But we know is that He is good, and that He is still on His throne.

And that alone is enough to silence us.

To quiet are hearts.

To provide rest when life is restless.

To provide refuge when the storm surrounds.

And we wait.

For Him to speak.
