Living miles away from family and friends can get lonely. Sometimes a phone call, an e-mail or a letter does wonders to ease that loneliness. A smile easily comes to my mouth when I log on and I see a note from my sister or nephew or niece. The phone rings and when I answer it’s my mother or mother-in-law on the other line. The flip of that is the sadness on the days when no e-mails come, no comments are made on my facebook page or blog, when the phone doesn’t ring.
Is that what God feels when He whispers, speaks calmly, yells or screams and yet receives no response from us. When weeks go by with out reading His lines, paragraphs, letters and books. How do I make Him feel when I get too busy and wrapped up in my day to take a minute to respond to a note He has written me or a whisper I have heard from Him?
I whisper, you don’t respond
I speak calmly, you don’t respond
I yell, you don’t respond
I scream, still no response
I write a simple line, you don’t respond
I write a paragraph, you don’t respond
I write a letter, you don’t respond
I write a book, still no response
I close my mouth
I lay down my pen
I give up
I know I can’t win
He whispers, do I respond?
He speaks calmly, do I respond?
He yells, do I respond?
He screams, do I respond?
He writes a line, do I respond?
He writes a paragraph, do I respond?
He writes a letter, do I respond?
He writes a book, do I respond?
He never closes His mouth
He never lays down His pen
He is always faithful
Until the very end
