Breaking the Silence


I haven’t posted an original thought on this blog in nearly five months. Were there words to explain the reasons why, I could fill a book. Words, however, continue to escape me. But this picture, captured from the journal of a 9th grader, is taped to my computer screen at work.

On days for which I have no words, these always seem to fill the silence.

Some days, love and obedience are intentional choices we make. They are intentional decisions to chase after the God who created and loves us. The choice to follow rather than run away.

Today, I choose to follow, not run. His love is better. Of this I am certain.
