“Friendships are often tested by separation and silence; you are divided by physical distance or you are unable to talk.” ~Day 14 The Purpose Driven Life
The test of a true friendship is one that can survive the silences. It allows the time and space needed for whatever the reason. It waits patiently for the reconnect, without doubting the sincerity or motives of the other. And while this is applicable to relationships here on this earth, it is also true of my relationship with God. There are times when there is a chasm of silence between us, not because of anything I did wrong, but as a way to mature my faith. It’s easy to believe when there’s joyful noise going on. But even in the silence, I still believe.
