Psalm 115:17 – The dead do not praise the Lord, nor do any who go down into silence. (NASB)
So loud it shatters the quietness surrounding me
I can feel my heart beating in my throat
I can hear him breathing
Unforgiveness sits on the throne
A silent tear slowly trickles down my cheek
I wonder what he is thinking right now or
if he is sleeping….unaware
Is he hurting too?
Ecclesiastes 3:7 – A time to tear apart, and a time to sew together; a time to be silent, and a time to speak.
Prayer: Father in heaven, without You there is silence and death. Help us to remember that You are with us in our hurting, in our trials and in our self-made silences. Help us to forgive as You have forgiven us. Amen.
