If I never hear from you again, then I am going to assume that you have said all you ever wanted or needed to say to me. I will assume that you have given me enough to go on for the rest of my life. I will remember what you have said in the past and know that those words, those promptings, those signs were all I ever needed.
I remember that you spoke to me through the waterfall that hot summer day. I remember that you confronted my idolatry that hot summer night. I remember you said YES when I asked you to show me how I don't love you - even though I didn't know what I was getting into. I remember you gave me dreams of clarity when my church blew up.
I know you always speak through the Bible and there is much for me to hear there. I will still read and study. I know that nature is your voice in full color. I will still look and listen and find wonder. I know that every broken, wounded, saddened, hopeless, helpless, hungry, sick, and dying soul is you. I will do my best to love you. I know that everything I have is something you left for me to pick up and use. I will use that stuff with all of my wisdom (and could I get a little more of that wisdom by the way?).
It just seems like I don't hear from you like I used to. That's OK. I believe you know what you're doing. If you've got something to say to me, I doubt you'll keep it from me. I'll keep on talking to you as best as I can. And I am going to keep listening, even if you are quiet the rest of my life. I will trust the Bible, nature, brokeness, and wisdom are your voice when I can't hear it any other way.
I want you to know that today I rest comfortably in your silence. Maybe that comfort is your voice.
I love you.
