Silence

Tossing and turning. Eyes open then closed. Noises that are distracting. No voices or visions. Just darkness.

Something doesn’t feel right. Something is trying to get attention. Uneasiness is all around.

What do you do in those moments when you are restless, and maybe even weary? You feel like you’ve done all the praying you can do. You’ve written on every page in your journal. You’ve burned the rubber off the bottom of your running shoes.  You’ve eaten all the candy, sweets, and other snacks found in the kitchen. You’ve watched all the mindless tv that you could handle.
You’re waiting to make your next move. Yet, you’re not quite sure what that move should be. Just continue to be still. Know that God is in complete and total control. In Horizontal Jesus, Tony Evans’ reminds us that “even when God is silent, He is not still.”
Although there may not be any answers at the present moment. Trust God and know that He is still God. Accordingly, He is still moving in your life, on your behalf, and through the situation. Take comfort in knowing that God has not left you. You will soon see how God remained your light in the darkness.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books ๐Ÿ“š that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
