Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 10/26/2014

Find the God of wisdom with some thoughts on His wisdom literature at Proverbial Thought!

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.
Psalm 40:1

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
