He Speaks in the Silence is the story of Diane Comers search for the kind of intimacy with God every woman longs for. It is a story of trying to be a good girl, of following the rules, of longing for a satisfaction that eludes us.
Disappointed with all Diane had been told was supposed to fulfill her, she begged God in desperation to give her more.
And He did. But first He took her through a trial so debilitating it almost destroyed what little faith she had.
He let her go deaf.
Like so many Christians, Diane thought shed signed up for the "wonderful plan for your life" and deafness certainly didnt fit her idea of a wonderful life. Yet in her brokenness, God met her and lifted her out of the pit of despair she was digging for herself. He lifted her onto the solid rock of real faith, and taught her to believe He is good even when life goes bad.
Using vivid parallels between her deafness and every womans struggle to hear God, this book reveals how Diane learned to listen to God, finding intimacy with her Savior and the soul deep satisfaction she longs for.
Diane Comer captivates the reader as she describes in profound ways her sudden world of silence. Her prose is poetic. In a riveting manner, she tells of her journey from a normal life that heard chirping birds, falling rain, a babys coo, and a lovers whisper to one of silence. She went from hearing laughter among her girl- friends, the singing of her husband, and her child calling Mom' to a world on mute. Few of us ever think about the reality of absolute deafness, but Diane narrates so powerfully that we enter her soundless world. When she cries, we cry. When she doubts, we doubt. When her faith ignites, our faith ignites. Amazingly, along with her, we hear God in the silence. What did God say? He Speaks in the Silence answers that question. Oh, and find out why, when she regained her hearing through the miracle of science, she daily disconnects to reenter her world of silence.
If you have ever wondered (as most of us do) ... Does God see me? Does he want to talk to me? Is it possible for me to hear him speak? Dianes story, compellingly and beautifully told, gets to the nitty gritty reality of what it means to know God deeply and intimately in all the silence and the noise of lifes good days, hard days, and every days.
When I think back to my childhood, one memory sticks out over all the noise; every morning I would walk down the stairs and find my mom sitting in her chair, Bible open, pen in hand, eyes focused but distant. She was hearing the one voice that could bypass her deafness. My mom taught me how to listen to God; this book will do the same for you.
He Speaks in the Silence is a beautiful read. Diane's unashamed vulnerability instantly draws you in and find yourself lost in her story---one where she freely admits her own insecurities and struggles with trust, faith, and understanding. Her honesty encourages you to seek and value silence, to make space to com- prehend your own journey deeper, and to truly press into the One who speaks in that silence. It's about seeing beauty where there seems to be none, about believing through doubt, about pursuing a wild hope. I highly recommend this book!
Diane Comers personal journey from disappointed good girl to deeply spiritual woman of God shows the power of the Spirits working in the midst of tragic loss when the eyes of faith opened deaf ears to hear the gently powerful voice of the Lord Most High. It will take you deep into intimacy with Him.
