Day 14: The Silence Of Faith


I hear the SILENCE of the morning

and the ringing in my ears.

I want GOD to do what I love what HE does

when HE does it,

but there is only SILENCE.

But is the SILENCE what HE wants me to hear?

It is the BE STILL moment of total SILENCE.

There is no "feeling" that HE is here,

yet I know HE is.

The SILENCE can be deafening

especially

when you purposely meet with GOD

and HE has nothing to say,

yet you know HE has so much to say.

THE SILENCE OF FAITH

is always a test for me

because I am not a STILL person.

Right now I feel like I am a child again

playing the SILENT game.

Hmm, but was it really a game.

You may have played it too.

My mom would challenge my siblings and I

to see who could remain silent the longest.

Hmm.

Now that really wasn't a game,

as it was a forced time of SILENCE and the nice way of saying

BE QUIET.

Well GOD wants me to be quiet right now

and I don't like it.

I am trying to force HIM to say something profound to me

because I crave more of HIM.

I always crave more of HIM,

because when you have experienced GOD

then you want more

and more

and more

of HIM

because HE is so much more

that we could ever fathom.

Do you hear my wrestling with HIM right now?

This isn't a GOD problem as it is my problem.

As I want GOD to perform for me.

Wow.

HE has spoken.

HE has broken through the SILENCE.

Who am I to tell GOD what to do what I want HIM to do

in the way that I want HIM to do it.

I hear the words that GOD spoke back to Job~

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?" (Job 38:4)

Basically, who am I to question GOD who created everything

including myself.

Yikes.

HE spoke.

I will embrace

THE SILENCE OF FAITH~

Being STILL right where I am

knowing I am with the ONE who wants to be with me.

Embrace

THE SILENCE OF FAITH

because

"HE IS WITH YOU" (listen to the song below)
