Are You There, God?

By: Tynea Lewis [New Holland, PA]

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 (NRSV)

Lord, over and over again
I seek your face.
I call out your name,
but I get no response.
Are you there?
Do you hear my cry,
or have you left me on my own?
My soul aches for you.
I need your comfort,
but you feel so distant.
“My child,” you whisper.
“Never have I left.
Never have I forsaken you.
Open your heart to my whispers.”


Reflect: Some situations we will never understand this side of heaven. We don’t know how anything good could possibly come from hardships or tragedy. We can’t see clearly through our pain; but God promises to be with us, to hold us, to comfort us, to walk with us. God promises to work for good in all situations, in ways we can’t even imagine. Open your heart. Where do you see God at work?



Act on It

Praying for the people around you most definitely changes your perspective. It allows you to love them with the love of Christ. Whom do you have trouble loving? Will you pray for them today?
