when words fail.

We all go through things that are tough.
Trials come.
Trials leave.
Bad things happen to you and to your friends.

So what do you say to your friends
when they burst into the hardest tears?
What happens when they let out the loudest scream?
What do you say when they're experiencing something you've never had to go through?

What do you do when words fail to come to your mind?

Nothing.

You sit there. And you hold their hand. Or lay on the football field in silence while they cry.
And you pray. And you buy them starbucks.


 

Don't misunderstand me. I believe there are many times when
we need to speak up, be bold, be soulful, and give a word of inspiration or encouragement.
However, there is a time and place for that.

So be still. Just be there. And let God be God. And let Him use you, whether that's silent or not, to be the friend He needs you to be.
