No Words

Silence is faith.

Before God
Before others

When I was quiet with G___ and B___ and J___ — that was faith.

When I am silent it is that.

Silence before M___ or D___ on C___.

Contentment in solitude
Acceptance of opposition
Okayness in life going ‘other’
No wife or woman

Prayer.

These are faith.

Faith not:

Needing to text
Needing to get texts
Social media sometimes

Anything Frantic

Arguing (M___, D___, others)
OCRM — J___ … sigh

Think of centurion faith … what is that? Just saying prayers, even deep ones, for three and one-third months?

No.

It is faith.

Silence before God + Man.

[Oh but you have to …

use your gifts …
tell people …
share the …

It’s OK to …

use rightful tools …
take part in these …
be in (just) not of … ]

There’s always an out.

Saved by grace …
[but, you know … ]

It doesn’t sound like an out, but it is. We don’t think so … but it is. It functions as one. Psychologically, internally — my body (and soul) thinks it is an out, and you take it.

Faith is silence.
