Yesterday, I’m happy to say that I successfully checked “See The Artist” off of my to-do list and I’m so glad I did!  I now fully support its victory at the Oscars.

I walked away blown away by how much purpose and emotion can be conveyed in silence.  And then I read this:

“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God.  Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage.  The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.”
Matthew 6:6 (MSG)

Much like The Artist captivated Hollywood with its silence, God can move mightily within the quiet spaces of our day.  Sometimes, more than words, we just need to steal away a few quiet moments with our God who loves us deeply.
