07. Silence

Genesis
by Joy Williams



 

Are You listening
To anything that I say
ĎCause I been praying
How many prayers can I pray
Iím still waiting
Maybe Youíll show up today
I know Youíre here, but I canít feel You
And if Youíre speaking, I canít hear You
How much longer will this last
So okay
Answer me with silence
Itís okay if You donít say a word
Youíre testing me to trust Youíll be faithful in this quiet
So okay
Answer me
With silence
Why do I question
Your intentions for me
When Your affection
Is a proven legacy
Oh Father, Father
Turn my fears into peace
I know Your love will never leave
I know You want whatís best for me
Youíre testing me to trust Youíll be faithful in this quiet
Oh, itís okay
If You answer me with silence
And itís okay if You donít say a word
Youíre testing me to trust Youíll be faithful in this quiet
So okay
Answer me
With silence

Behind the Song:
'This is about a very dry spiritual season for me that, oddly enough, happened right after I got married. There was very much a sense of loving the Lord, but I was in this dilemma of, ďHow do I love two men?Ē I began to slowly meander into talking to Nate about things I was struggling with instead of shooting it upwards first. I realized that as I was starting to pray, I was recognizing a distance. I recognized that it wasnít God withdrawing himself from me, it was me withdrawing from God Ė and Iím still taking those steps back. This is about when you feel that God isnít there and wanting to get back to that place of listening to his voice, trusting that sometimes silence is an answer.' - Joy Williams
