Maybe I've said enough

Have you ever gotten to the place where you have nothing of value left to say? I'm there; I've been there for a while, and I got nothin'. Maybe it's part of the humility study I took on this year. Maybe it's God putting a guard at my mouth and asking me to shut up long enough to listen.


So for now I'm trying to absorb and apply what I've learned from Paul Miller's book, Love Walked Among Us, while diving head-first into Andrew Murray's Humility. Loving like Jesus means dying to self, that much I get. But putting it into practice is another gigantic matter all together. I rarely get it right, choosing to love like me and asking God to bless it, and akin to the disciples, my heart is often hard even after I've seen Jesus do a huge work (Mark 6:52).

I need to be still now and listen for the God Who is not silent.
