the silence

So many times I have prayed and asked for God to close a door to something I already knew was outside of His will. A relationship I had allowed to become unholy, a temptation that I knew didn’t align with God’s best for me … It’s easy to say we are trying to submit our lives to God, but so often we already know the truth so we try to “wait on the Lord,” to do the heavy lifting, knowing He has already been clear in His Word. God doesn’t just want to tell us what to do; He wants us to learn to live holy, submitted lives. To seek and find. To not only read His Word, but to allow it to become a part of who we are. 
Only when we weigh all things against His holiness, do we find fullness of freedom in this life of faith.
