Message from God Through My Friend Tessa

I went to my friend, Tessa's (coolest kid on earth, BTW) alternate blog and found the following post. I think God knew that I needed to read something JUST like this today.

And yes, I still believe in God even when He is silent. But.... if we listen closely, He will remind us, ever so simply, that He is still here. Read the last line of Tessa's post.

I was at a concert, and they sang a song with this chorus:

I believe in the sun,
Even when it's not shining.
I believe in love,
Even when I don't feel it.
I believe in God,
Even when He is silent.

Then, they told a story about these words. These were found on a wall in Germany. A man had carved them into the wall. He was a prisoner in a concentration camp. Even when death looked him in the face, he was still optimistic. He still had faith. He had probably lost his family, all he owned, and he had probably lost his dignity. He had been stripped of all his happiness, and still had faith that God would deliver him. We don't know what happened to him, but I'm sure he probably saw his family again, including his Heavenly Father.

Powerful.
Moving.
Wow.

That's an example if you needed one.
