Where is God in the midst of my suffering?
When circumstances around us become almost unbearable, we wonder “God have you forgotten about us?” Have you forgotten about me? Do you see what all is happening? Can you feel the pain in my heart? The things I am going through? This pain that aches so much.
I know you are always there and I am grateful that you don’t leave, even if there are moments I do not feel your presence. Why can’t you be here to give me a hug and tell me “everything is going to be okay”. But, you calm my soul the way you calm the waters and say “for I am going to do something new in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” And Lord, I believe in every word you say.
