YOU HEAR ALL THE CRIES, LIES, AND WHAT WE WISH TO HIDE.
I speak every known language of people far and near,
But greetings are my favorite response to the listening ear.
And with my long stretched neck way in the clouds I hear,
A single tear drop of success that is loud and clear.
Though in my depressions I listen to all those lost in fear,
At times becoming aggravated, causing things to disappear.
That type of internal disturbance I wish not to reappear,
For the devastation can last, for many a year.
But after hours of anxiety is shouted way up in the sky,
I pajama up, though never do I really mean to say goodbye.
For even during the darkest hours do I mimic with repetition,
Though never am I negligent as to your uttering benedictions.
So if you feel the need to cross the waters and escape,
Then come and lay it on me, because I’m an open gate.

KEEP ASKING, SEEKING, KNOCKING
When The Echo Stops
If such an awesome site as the Andes Mountains that stretch some 4,500 miles from Bolivia to Peru can echo our cries then why not believe that God who cares about us so much, can receive them as well.
1 Peter 5:7-10
"Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. Discipline yourselves; keep alert. Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour. Resist him, steadfast in your faith, for you know that your brothers and sisters throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you." New Revised Standard Version.
So no matter what you are going through as Psalm 55:22 suggest,
"Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself,
And he himself will sustain you." New World Translation.
And he has promised to all those belonging to him to help us get through all of our fears at Isaiah 41:10.
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." King James Version.
So when the Echo stops and you have received no answer, then ask again, and again. But remember God responds accordingly, and in three ways. Yes, No, and be Patient.
