Where Art Thou, O God? (A Poem)
Where Art Thou, O God?
Our Divine and All-Powerful God: Do you truly love us? How many times have we heard the phrase: "God loves you?" Do you expect sunny skies, which have no grays where all you could see is blue?
Where is God when things go wrong? Are we supposed to ignore the chaos and pretend everything is coming along? Does God ever listen to our prayers anymore? Does God even care?
The truth is God never promised that there will be no trials in our lives,
Or that we will be free from suffering
Or that everything will have a happy ending.
God wants us to understand His role in our lives:
It is in sorrows that we realize we need God's guidance,
It is in darkness that we see God's radiant light,
It is when we commit our problems to God that we can be at peace with ourselves.
How do we get our Lord's guidance?
How do we see our Lord's radiant light?
How do we fully commit ourselves to the Lord?
The truth is God never left us-we are the ones who left Him.
His love for us is everlasting-we just need to reach out to Him.
Our Heavenly Father wants us to fully trust in Him.
Why not give God a chance?
Put your trust in God:
Pray when things are going well,
Pray when things go wrong;
Pray when you want to yell,
Pray when you would rather mourn,
Pray whenever you feel like praying.
You see? God never gave up on us.
All He wants us to do is to reach out to him by praying.
So, pray without ceasing: pray, Pray, PRAY!
