What if my perceived silence from God is actually an opportunity for my stillness and trust in Him?

I know He’s good. I know He’s trustworthy. There comes a time though when it just doesn’t feel good. That I feel He’s silent.

And that is exactly where I land. On my feelings. Not on the Truth of His Word, of Him and Who He Is, Was and Will Forever Be. My perceptions and feelings aren’t in full understanding of Him, and they won’t be on this side of life.

However I must trust, even when I flat out don’t want to, that it’s not silence. It’s not His forgetfulness (because He cannot have that characteristic). No, I must be still and reflect His stillness. I must seize the opportunity to trust beyond words, beyond feelings and beyond comprehension.
