Consider the void of space before time. Empty. Null. Dark. Yet, God spoke in the silence All that is, became.
We are threatened by silence because it is beyond us. We cannot make it speak or dance. Only God can turn that which is not into something that is.
The Promise of Silence
Silence is Father’s promise, because there is no silence into which He cannot speak; no void to which He cannot give dimension; no darkness that He cannot illuminate.
Each of these — silence, void, and darkness — need not be fearsome. They are our friends. We should never shrink from them, but embrace them in the certain knowledge that Father fills all. He makes the empty places a womb.
He is ever fruitful.
