Believe

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent

I saw this today at the Christian Book Store by my house.

I fell in love with it. I have no idea why I didn't buy it. Stupid I guess cuz there's a really good chance, I'll go buy it. I loved it.

I've been busy these days off, but so much relaxing (for me!) so much quiet moments by myself in the car, some crying, some talking (praying), and some just listening.

I wonder so much why I'm not brave. Why I don't step out. This time I've spent has reminded me that all my time on the phone in the car, has taken me away from Him. Not listening to podcasts, not listening to Him speak, not speaking to Him, has been such a waste of my time. Though I've had good conversations, I need to stay connected.

And thinking of that last part... I believe in God even when He is silent

Is it Him who is silent or do I silence Him because I'm not opening myself to listening?

I believe

1 Peter 1:7-9 7These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
