I don’t want to whisper today. I want to scream. There is no one here to hear me either way, so it wouldn’t really matter. But the person I talk to on these quiet alone days is God, and I could calmly and sweetly whisper my prayer, but I don’t want to. I want to scream it!
Are you up there?
Are you listening?
Why aren’t you helping me?
Why are all these problems still unsolved?
Why, why, why.
Maybe if I would be quiet, I would hear Him whisper… maybe something like this.
Yes, Shari, I’m here.
Yes, I’m listening.
I really am helping you even if you don’t see it yet.
Unsolved? Maybe they’re not going to be solved. Anytime soon anyway.
Maybe those problems are to get you to turn to me because you know in your heart and soul that I’ve got it, and that I’ll solve them all in my time. You know I could do it now, in a heartbeat, if that’s how I had it planned.
You won’t know all the whys until we meet face to face.
And even as I write that, I know I don’t need to stress. I know that I am just to show up and do what He’s given me to do every day. And He will handle the rest.
