I had this thought the other day when I was alone in my room; no music on, no sounds outside, no loud thoughts. It was just Silent.
I tend to veer away from silence, as most humans do. We want to run away from our nagging thoughts and deep fears.
What if Silence, somehow, is the perfect metaphor of an Omnipresent God? What if:
Silence isn’t because of the absence of God, but is the representation of His absolute Presence.
I sat there in the Silence, I knew God was with me. Not because of His words, or because of feelings, or because of signs and wonders, but because of this deep surrounding of Silence. It’s something I could never escape, something that will always be with me. When all is stripped away – the Silence is the only thing left.
It was comforting.
A gentle reminder that God is always with us, whether we feel it or not.
“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.” Psalm 139:7-10 (NKJV)
