So waiting to find out...and you know me and my patience...and so I laugh at today's My Utmost For His Highest...Just seemed to nudge me...and also made me funny as a friend says RIGHT OUT LOUD! 

God’s Silence— Then What?

October 11, 2012
"When He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was —John 11:6
Has God trusted you with His silence— a silence that has great meaning? God’s silences are actually His answers. Just think of those days of absolute silence in the home at Bethany! Is there anything comparable to those days in your life? Can God trust you like that, or are you still asking Him for a visible answer? God will give you the very blessings you ask if you refuse to go any further without them, but His silence is the sign that He is bringing you into an even more wonderful understanding of Himself. Are you mourning before God because you have not had an audible response? When you cannot hear God, you will find that He has trusted you in the most intimate way possible— with absolute silence, not a silence of despair, but one of pleasure, because He saw that you could withstand an even bigger revelation. If God has given you a silence, then praise Him— He is bringing you into the mainstream of His purposes. The actual evidence of the answer in time is simply a matter of God’s sovereignty. Time is nothing to God. For a while you may have said, “I asked God to give me bread, but He gave me a stone instead” (see Matthew 7:9). He did not give you a stone, and today you find that He gave you the “bread of life” (John 6:35).
A wonderful thing about God’s silence is that His stillness is contagious— it gets into you, causing you to become perfectly confident so that you can honestly say, “I know that God has heard me.” His silence is the very proof that He has. As long as you have the idea that God will always bless you in answer to prayer, He will do it, but He will never give you the grace of His silence. If Jesus Christ is bringing you into the understanding that prayer is for the glorifying of His Father, then He will give you the first sign of His intimacy— silence."

This morning on my way to work...I heard this song...haven't heard it for a long time and actually never really had thought about it...I think of hero...that perhaps we all have hero in us...Just made me think of Jay...that sometimes just being who we are and what we think is the right thing...makes a hero...Boy that boy sure is on my mind...

Heard this one I love his voice...Big Daddy Weave...I've been Redeemed...has just been in my head so now I put in yours...

So I say sweet I will go ride my bike elsewhere...BUT I get to see a Firecracker tomorrow!!  Oh ya!   Happy Dance!
