Day 20: The Silent Wait


If you have nothing good to say

say nothing at all~

as that is where I am this morning.

My heart hurts.

I have been sitting in SILENCE,

but not to GOD

who collects my tears

and hears my woes

and tells me to continue to

WAIT in HIM

as I sit in SILENCE.

Oh SILENCE isn't my strength,

as I sit here asking GOD

for wisdom & discernment

between what

I should say and not say

as I keep hearing the mantra

for which I was raised by

that

children should be seen and not heard.

So what is a 60 year old grown up child to do?

And GOD says

WAIT in SILENCE.

Oh the heaviness of WAITING in SILENCE,

but it is in the SILENCE

that this child

HEARS her FATHER'S voice

who SEES her

and continues to

give her wisdom & discernment

as she listens to HIM speak so that she takes HIS WORDS to heart

so that she continues to

WAIT in SILENCE,

yet speaking

HIS TRUTH

because

HIS WORDS are always better than mine~

"What actually took place is this:

I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please GOD, and it didn’t work.

So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be GOD'S man.

CHRIST'S life showed me how, and enabled me to do it.

I identified myself completely with HIM.

Indeed, I have been crucified with CHRIST.

My ego is no longer central.

It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion,

and I am no longer driven to impress GOD.

CHRIST lives in me.

The life you see me living is not mine,

but it is lived by faith in the SON of GOD,

who loved me and gave HIMSELF for me. I am not going to go back on that"

(Galatians 2:19-21 MSG).

Thank YOU GOD

for being my SILENCER

so that you can

be SEEN & HEARD

because

I am SEEN & HEARD by YOU

and you are SEEN & HEARD by HIM

because of

HIS AMAZING GRACE

that never runs dry.

Therefore

don't be SILENT to the ONE WHO HEARS

while you

WAIT in SILENCE.

Speak up & BE SEEN

by THE ONE who SEES you and HEARS you

as you continue to stand

in HIS TRUTH,

because of

"HIS AMAZING GRACE" (song below)

that is never silent.
