There are key moments in scripture that God is at work when He is silent: "When He created you, He was silent. When He redeemed you, He was silent." What I'm learning is that just because I'm not hearing Him in a way that aligns with my expectations, it doesn't mean He's not speaking. Even still, it is really hard for me to be at rest when questions go seemingly unanswered.
Do you know what happens when you tighten the strings on an instrument? Its sound changes. The frequency is altered. While the same instrument, it presents a different expression of itself. Sometimes that brings forth a sound greater than where it began. Lately I’ve wondered what the soundtrack to my life would truly be, could I align sounds and rhythm to convey the frequency that I live in today, could I put audible expression to this season that I call my own.
Dear twenty-year old girl,
I was you once.
I remember feeling the pressure to measure up.
To find light within the darkest nights
and joy within the sorrow
and peace within the raging storms
and hope for the tomorrow
I will not stop, I won't relent
At least--not without a fight
And when I wake, if nothing's changed
I'll dream it again tonight
