Does God Hear Me Pray…

05 Jul


Does God Hear Me Pray  Above me a storm rages,

around me the winds whip the rain against me;

standing near the water’s edge the sands cut into

my bare flesh.  This storm like life confuses me,

my faith fades, my heart aches and the black and

endless night waits for the light of day. The understanding

of what lies beyond the heavens eludes me; does

God hold my hand, does God watch over

me in my despair; does he hear me when I pray.

    He hears our prayers but I feel that there are times we are unable to know why sad things happrn. Like babies dying and good people struggling while some are smooth sailing all the way. Bless you! ♡

    God is always faithful. His timing may not be as accommodative as ours but his timing is perfect.

    This is wonderful Elizabeth Ann, you are posing the question we all wish we knew the answer to. Well done.

      It was short but I felt it as I wrote it. A question for you as a writer. Many have written giving me “words of encouragement”. Now, much, no all of my writing comes from truth and experience. However, I am always “shocked” so to speak that some feel I am getting ready to jump off a cliff with my creativity. Can one not write on a subject without someone thinking that they need to save the writer. I loved your comment you understood that I put a question out there without thinking you had to call a “hotline”. Do you ever get those comments that seem a bit over the top. Thanks Dom… Ann
