sitting in silence forces us to answer the question, is right here, right now, enough? more than this, perhaps, the question becomes, is God enough?
it's become so easy to fill our minds and hearts with words, images, thoughts, desires. what then will happen if we endeavor to empty ourselves of all this and simply wait?
will He come? will He suffice? will we be left wanting more?
here, perhaps, remembering the ways by which we sometimes address God may be of some benefit.
Emmanuel, God with us; Jireh, our provider.
He is here.
and He is enough...
