When Words are Few

Twenty twenty has been a difficult year. It will forever be a year that stains our memory and stings our minds eye. For some, it’s been an incredible time of self reflection and solitude but for others its been a time of uneasiness and angst. Whatever your journey has looked like in the last seven weeks, Jesus remains the same in all situations. His promises hold true and His character remains unchanged. He is always true to Who He says He is.

When my words are few and unfinished sentences leave their mark on my blank page, when all that white space speaks so much louder than the sound of my fingertips dancing their way across my keyboard, when my emotions are raw and reality has hit home; I draw close to the throne of grace. The ever welcoming and open arms of my Lord, beckons me in and embraces my wanderings.

I know this to be true always;
