Without a Word

August 15, 2007

Sometimes it is impossible to verbalize the reasons for our sadness. Vague, melancholy feelings may cast our hearts into the darkness of confusion. Without our saying a word, God understands and accepts the changing landscape of human moods and emotions. God listens to every silent soul prayer with empathy and love.


‘Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul.’ – M. Gandhi –

Thank you for your prayers, my friends.

    Sometimes in our busyness we do forget, Zewt.
    All it takes is 5 minutes of your day. 😉

    Best regards for you and family, Jem.

    A very good friend text me this: “Things will be right if you put hope & faith that it’ll be all right”.. hence I live in hope, M. 🙂

    On behalf of my family, I thank you for your well-wishes & prayers.

    That is so true, sometimes sadness just overwhelms you and when someone asks you why – you don’t have a valid reason to give.

    Looks like we have much in common, Sha. 😉

    Well said … Whenever we pray, faith and hope will be renewed. But it doesn’t really help if those who are in trouble and decides to turn to God. It’s a long term thing.


    I hope everything is going well there for you.

    I agree, Kyels.
    We can’t expect immediate answers if we only start praying when we are in need.

    Things could be better, my friend.

    and sometimes, being silent is all we need. being silent is the answer.

    Alison, I’m setting a daily silent time for myself to contemplate the sadness & depression I feel.. so that HE can listen to my unspoken questions & needs.. so that I can listen to HIS wise & loving response in silence that surrounds me.
