I sit in Silence and Listen to God

Have you ever just sat and listened? Michele often asks me “besides smoking and drinking, what are you doing in the garage?”

I reply, I’m praying for you and listening to God speak to me.

Cancer is hard on the person that has it and for those that love the person with it and there are numerous support groups for everyone involved. But what if I just want a moment of silence to gather my thoughts, pray and listen to what God has to tell me?

One of the hardest things I have had to endure since Michele’s diagnosis is the fear of the unknown. What now? What next? How do I handle this? Silence I have found is medicinal in that I don’t have to have the answers, I just need to be present. Ok, sitting in the garage smoking and drinking wasn’t working out so well, I wasn’t present, but I was listening.

I heard you ask me to stop and I heard you ask me to be with you, not just in the same place, but next to you. And I am. If I stop listening again, remind me to sit in silence, I’ll hear you.

God Bless
