Perhaps you have heard the doubting question, “Where is God when we cry to Him?”
I say doubting, and not unbelieving, because many Christians and Jews alike have asked this type of question, and the poem today was written after such a time in my own life.
And we know King David dealt with similar doubts, for those with the strongest faith tend to be those who have faced the darkest trials, and he wrote these words:
In my distress I called upon the Lord;
to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.
Psalm 18:6, ESV
I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
I wrote these:
what if God did not listen
what if His ears were deaf
there would be no reason
to come and offer ourselves
there would be no creation
all of life would be a jest
we were created to talk to Him
created for relationships
praise to the Lord God Almighty
He listens to all of our cries
who but the King of Majesty
Who sent His Son to die
would care enough to see
that we see Him in our lives
praise our Father and King
for sending Jesus the Christ
proving He listens
