Sometimes but Always


Sometimes I am afraid of the silence. To stop and let the silence speak..

I usually crave to be silent.
With all the noise of life, I seek to be still and listen. To stop, ponder and reflect.

But sometimes I am afraid to hear my own thoughts. Pain. Fear.
To hear what God might be saying. Or not.

I am aware of what the silence will remind me of . And I fear it is too much for me to bear… sometimes.

Sometimes the silence reminds me of the ache in my heart and gives voice to the questions and wonderings that I am afraid to let linger too long.

Sometimes the silence reminds me, I don’t know where God is or what He is saying.


And yet in the silence, my heart whispers – be still and know that He is God.

I want answers! But how to be still when there is so much turmoil and unrest in my heart. The silence reminds me I am over it all. And at the end of my own resources and strength.

In my weakness, He is made strong. Always
In the silence – God is strong. Always.

If He says nothing, do I do nothing? At all?
But wait.

Waiting on the Lord can be so frustrating at times. When is enough, enough? Of waiting.

Those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not be faint.
Wait on the Lord.

Sometimes I feel like I’m about to faint. Fall in a heap.
I feel weary.

But wait. Just one more day, one day at a time.
God is strong in the silence and I am not.
When I wait, I see that. He is always strong and I am not.

He is able to do all things
He is creator and giver of life
He is my strength and strong tower
He is all I have and all I really need
In Him is my everything.

He is good. Always
He is strong. Always
He is perfect.
