Silence is Golden

Back in the 70’s – that would be 1970’s – there was a song that came out called, “Silence is Golden.”  It was a popular song – simple.  Someone sees that a young girl is going to get hurt by a man.  It is obvious to all except this young girl – she can’t see what is happening.

Silence is golden
But my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see.

In our world today, I see the destruction that surrounds me – I can see with my eyes – but my words just fall to the ground – silence is golden.

That is what the world has to offer.

BUT, God has a different plan – a different silence.  It is in those quiet moments, alone with Him, that I am refreshed – renewed.


Jesus Cares


Psalm 147:3 – He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  (ESV)

I come into His Presence – running to Him – then I curl up in His big lap and He holds me in silence.  I too.  It is quiet and healing.  I pour out the tears but no words are ever spoken.  When I am refreshed – renewed – I give Him a hug and go back out into the world ready to share the healing that I received.

I remember another song – a hymn from my youth.  I am sharing it with you today:

Does Jesus Care?

Oh, Yes! He cares!  I know He cares – He cares for you and for me.
