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!

    Great word and examples We all need to practice silence in different circumstances. Thanks for the encouragement and example of how big our God is to heal and restore when we obey His word to us.

      Thanks for the encouragement. It’s amazing how if I listen to Him closely and I keep my mouth closed how he will redeem me in many situations. Varied in nature. He definitely knows what he is doing. Thanks again,

    What a witness to God’s power and obeying it! I’m afraid I’m not always a good listener and miss God’s word for me. Thanks for sharing! Cindy #fmf

      Thanks for the encouragment. Im not always good either. But it seems the more I’m intentional about doing it the easier it is to hear him.
      Praying for you.
