Day 17: Awaiting Answers


You PRAY & PRAY & PRAY

but everything stays the same

because

what you are PRAYING for

appears to be landing on deaf ears.

But you are oh so persistent

as you refuse to give up

even though it appears

others have given up on you

and even GOD

as HE is so silent.

But you still PRAY without ceasing

because that is what GOD asks of you.

And you WAIT & WAIT & WAIT.

And in the WAITING something happens,

Time keeps moving forward

just as you are

PRESSING FORWARD in the WAIT.

So maybe just maybe

GOD is answering your PRAYERS

because HE does HEAR

as HE is with you in the WAIT.

So maybe just maybe

the WAIT is where we meet GOD'S sweet spot

because HE doesn't run away

while we WAIT

because

HE sits with us.

THANK YOU GOD for the WAIT.

"Come and hear, all you who fear GOD;

let me tell you what HE has done for me.

I cried out to HIM with my mouth;

HIS praise was on my tongue.

If I had cherished sin in my heart,

the LORD would not have listened;

but GOD has surely listened

and has heard my prayer.

Praise be to GOD,

who has not rejected my prayer

or withheld HIS love from me!" (Psalm 66:16-20)

Therefore

keep PRAYING

as I will never stop PRAYING

because PRAYER brings us

closer & closer & closer

to the ONE who is always listening

And this is

"MY PRAYER FOR YOU" (listen to the song below)
