Breaking the Silence

Sounds in the forest. Does anyone hear?

Do you ever pray and think God is not listening…

When I am worried and I pray, but my anxious thoughts continue.
When I am tired and I pray for strength but continue to feel weary.
When I am filled with grief and I pray but continue to cry.
When I am afraid, and I pray but only hear my racing heart.

Lord, are You listening?

In my anxiety, God helps me to rely on His peace.
In my weakness, God helps me build my faith in Him.
In my sorrow, God cries with me and draws me closer to Him.
In my fear, the fear of God triumphs and burns away the dross.

When I think God is not listening,
I am the one who is not listening,
for He is at work in me.

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13
