The Promise of Silence

 December 30, 2016

Christmas – Season of Promise

Consider the power of words. With them I encourage and congratulate, embarrass and insult, proclaim my love–and my promises.

Consider, too, the power of words unspoken, the power of silence. Silence is pregnant, full of potential.

Lord, give me the wisdom to know when to speak and when to be silent. May my words bring you–your truth, your comfort, your hope–to others.

In the beginning was the Word; the Word was in God’s presence, and the word was God.    John 1:1
