Five Minute Friday on Monday night
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
When I think of silence, I think of one particular time in my life when I know, I just knew I had to be silent. It was a time during my 2nd marriage was falling apart. My 1st marriage had failed for many reasons and I was determined that my second one would not. But I was also determined that this go around I was not going to be a door mat. No one was going to run over me again. Hence, part of the reason my 2nd was failing.
I was done! And God spoke to me, saying be quiet, I will fight for you. And he did. I literally closed my mouth for 1 year and He rebuilt a marriage. That was 12 years ago and we are better than ever. I now have a voice but without that time of silence, I wouldn’t be where I am and God wouldn’t have had the glory. He has given me many other opportunities to be silent and every time He comes out on top!
