So one of my readers asked, “What is the draw of the silence?
The silent gaze of the One who loves you conveys tenderness, understanding, compassion and so much more.
It’s pretty tangible, just as if He is standing or sitting beside you, enjoying your company, even as you enjoy His.
This cannot be imagined. It can only be experienced.
Sometimes, He speaks; and whatever He says will come to pass.
Most times, I am content just to know He is there.
Many are uncomfortable with silence and that is a pity, for God is often found in quietness. His Spirit calls to our spirit; His Deep calls to our deep.
And when we respond, He rewards us with His unwavering attention.
Each silence has its own innate quality; some silences have the essence of peace; some convey strength; others, understanding. Each silence is different. But Love is embedded in every aspect of the silences of God. That is how we know the silences are of Him.
And my reader asks, “What is the purpose?”
I have no purpose except to enjoy being with the One who loves me.
