While reading my devotion today (brief confession, I haven't posted about my devotions because i fell off the wagon so to speak, and I haven't been doing them, bad on me) the verses were from John 11.  It talks about Lazarus getting sick and his sisters sending word to Jesus to come.  When Jesus heard he sent back a promise that Laz would not die, and that this happened so that God would receive the Glory and that God's Son would also be glorified through it.  Then Jesus stayed where he was for 2 more days....

What?! So you've been here, you need God's help so desperately, and he is silent.  God has left reassurance in His Word, so we know that God has a plan to prosper and not harm us...but sometimes we have to wait it out.

My devotion then went on to say a quote from Oswald Chambers: “Has God trusted you with a silence—a silence that is big with meaning? "  Has God trusted me with silence?  This puts a different spin on things for know that God has a plan but He is trusting me to trust Him.

Lord, thank you for your silence today.  Thank you for trusting me, what an honor it is to know you and love you! I pray that as I continue to face challenges that I remember that you've already reassured me and that now I am to be patient and wait for your plan to be revealed.  Amen.


  1. Really great Meg. Thanks for sharing what you're reading (as always). This was so comforting! I've fallen off the bandwagon too during my crazy busy May. Why is it during busy times, our time w/ God is the first thing to go? Just what we need the most too.- Praying for you today! Hug, ~Kristin

  2. i have always been so inconsistent with my Scripture reading. i can pray the day away, but i forget to chomp on some Truth all too often! what a good Word you received. thanks for sharing it!
