I finished Lost Women of the Bible, which I really enjoyed. On to the next one. But, I did want to post one paragraph that really stood out to me. I hope it is an encouragement to you too.

God's silence is not an accurate way to measure what he is doing. It's easy to forget he often does his best work when, so far as we can tell, he doesn't seem to be doing anything at all. But, looking back on those long agonizing stretches of God's silence, most of us will say those were the times in our relationship with God when he was doing the most.

We're going on seven months here. God hasn't been silent this whole time, but there have been periods throughout when there was no sign from above, no answered prayer, no hand extended to us. Those times have felt incredibly lonely, but they have also been times when I can do nothing else but throw myself at His feet. They cause me to hunger after Him more, to seek Him most.

I hear another book calling my name. Another by Carolyn James....
