Heavenly Father, I didn't hear You. I've confessed all known sin as I don't want anything to come between us when I need You so much. I'm listening.
Dear God, I don't understand. I need to hear You speak to me. I'm devastated, I don't know what's next, and I long to hear Your voice. More than ever, I need to know You're there.
Why can't I hear You, Lord?
I can't believe this. In the many years I've known You, I have willingly followed Your lead, wanting more than anything to please You. I'm seeking You, I'm listening intently, and yet You aren't speaking to me. Please say something.
Okay, I don't get it. Seriously? You let all of these bad things happen and now You have nothing to say! Unbelievable!
Fine! Go ahead and abandon me. I'm done!
<i>I love you.</i>
What? Was that You, Lord? I sought You weeks ago, and You were silent. I finally just gave up.
<i>I'm here now.</i>
Well, isn't that precious. But I'd say You're a little late. I don't want to hear what You have to say anymore.
<i>I never left you. I never stopped loving you.</i>
<i>I know you've been hurting, and I've been hurting with you.</i>
<i>I've never taken My eyes off you.</i>
<i>I'm right here whenever you're ready.</i>
I'm still mad at You. I don't know how You could be silent when I needed You so much.
<i>One day you will understand. I'm speaking to you now.</i>
That's just fine, but a lot more has to happen.
<i>I know. For now, I'm just glad you're talking to Me. And for now, just let Me love you.</i>
And a hardened heart begins to melt.
