Week 2 Day 1

This week's word is silence.

In the hundreds of years spent anticipating the arrival of Messiah, the people waited in silence.  God had sent His messengers.  Many people did not listen.  And, so, the people waited in silence.

Then, God sent word of the arrival of the forerunner.  Again, there was disbelief.  This time there was a forced silence.

In the silence, God is at work.

Silence is not to be feared or undesired.

We should lean into the silence.  Resting in it.

Even when we don't understand it.

Even when we can't feel Him.

Even when we feel abandoned and alone.

He is there, in the silence.  Sitting with us.

The end of the silence will come.

I look forward to exploring this theme together this week.  Let's see what God has to say to us about silence.
