When God is Silent


Desiray’s Corner

Welcome to my corner I guess you are wondering why I call it my corner? Well I actually have no other name to call it, for me it’s a place where I share my thoughts about life. If you decide to join me in my corner you will find the latest of things in which I am thinking about, what I am praying about and what is on my heart.

thJB7W3SKYFor the last six months or so, I have been seeking God concerning a career change and during that time it felt as though He has been silent towards me.

I began questioning myself asking if I am praying more? I mean family I was praying daily and  my husband was praying for me and with me.

But what I needed from God was a word. And it seemed as though God was silent for months. There were days I just couldn’t pull it together, one minute I was crying the next I was upset. I was mad. Then all of a sudden after five months I heard a voice from heaven. While in the shower I said “Lord, I wish I could call my mother for she always gave me wise words, but she couldn’t do that no more for you Lord have called her home.

Immediately after I said those words I had this great urgency to open my bible I got out of that shower quickly.  I opened my bible and the Lord took me to Romans 12:32 “For He did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall he not with him freely give us all things” As I read this out loud my spirit leaped like Elizabeth’s baby leaped in her when Mary went to visit her.

Talk about the tears of JOY that came down my face, that spirit of oppression immediately left that heavy load was no more. From that moment that I heard the voice of God, I still quote this scripture several times a day, before my feet hit the floor in the morning ,at noonday, evening and before I go to bed.  I want you guys to know that I haven’t stopped quoting this verse, it has been excellent medicine for my spirit and soul.

My prayer for you is this, there will be times when it does seems like God is silent and it can go for long periods of times but never quit. I never stopped praying I never stopped seeking Him, and I kept hope which is my faith in God. For I knew He was working rather I heard Him or not.
