"I will love You in Your silence, I will trust You in the dark."

~ In Your Silence by Molly Ijames

There are times when it feels like God has turned a deaf ear to our prayers.   It can be when we are asking for a cure from an illness, a broken relationship to be restored, a job promotion, a large amount of debt to be settled, a loved one to get saved, or even the simplest thing we could think of.  We tend to get impatient with the "delays" in the answers to our sincerest prayers.  We then begin to question if God really cares.

It is truly difficult to trust God wholeheartedly when we don't get immediate answers to our prayers, or when we can't seem to see His plan, but keep in mind that God is in sovereign.  The Lord said in Isaiah 55:8-9, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways...   For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts," and in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you...   thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."  What we perceive as "delays" are God's perfect timing, and what we perceive as "silence" is His way to say that He is in control and will carry us through.  We just have to trust Him.


Dear Lord,

Thank You for another wonderful and blessed Sunday at church this morning.  Thank You for using that song to touch my heart.  Forgive me when I fail to put my complete trust in You.  Thank You for reminding me that You are always in control.  Teach me to be more trusting in You. 

In Christ's most precious name,

  1. Very true! :)

    I'm so glad that through thick and thin, I have God with me!

  2. It is REALLY hard to learn to let go and trust. I'm working on it, though! :-)
