I know its an evil generation
that seeks for a sign.
But I’m not a generation, Lord.
I’m one man asking to know if
you’re still pleased.
My sign doesn’t have to mimic the
miracles from your heyday.
I understand that was then
and this, this is not then.
I’m willing to take anything,
anything except this boiling silence
in the center of everything.
I simply want it to be like it used to be.
I could hear you in the wind then.
But this, this is not then.
Hearing you always gave me
the courage to love.

    I know this feeling.

    I know it, too. Can’t sleep tonight and this one rings a bell I’d rather not hear just now. As always, however, the words shimmer.For that, I say thank you.

    “The only sign you will be given is the sign of Jonah.” Is it possible that the Lord is asking *us* to “remember” in His times of silence? To remember that He died for us as the supreme proof of His love? To go back to meditating on the cross?

    I have felt this collective cloud cloud recently. Ready for to hear Him again, if even in the wind & rain.

    Hey there. Yep, sounds like the same season of desolation I’ve come to know these past few months, too. Where you’re just like, “God? Want to say something to me? Anything? Please? I miss your voice.”
    Hang in there.
    If it’s any consolation (heh), your poetry still moves me.

    You said exactly how my soul feels. How did you do that? You just broke the boiling silence, which means, you are being used. In the most beautiful of ways….
