For God alone my soul in silence waits; *
truly, my hope is in him. Psalm 62:6
I used to think I was so smart, because when things got tough, I knew exactly what action to take. When I was going through a divorce, I was so heartbroken and felt so much grief. I took lots of actions like going to counseling, getting involved with a personal growth community, and getting more involved with church. I was actually looking for something to take away the pain of the grief, sadness and loss I was feeling. So I took action.
Everything I did was really very healthy. It wasn’t that I was doing things that were bad for me, but it was that nothing was going to make the pain go away, except living through it. I had to walk through that pain, grief and loss. I needed to sit still…. I needed to sit in silence for awhile and wait upon God.
Now I know when I feel anxious or in deep grief, I need to be silent and wait on God, because therein lies my hope, rather than in any action I might take.
Blessings as you finish your week!
