Hello God, It’s Me Again! Are You There?

Lord, are you listening? I wake up, and then I live my day in a rush; by the time I go to bed, I honestly don’t know who I am, or what the point is. Sometimes when I talk to you, I feel like I’m talking to myself, but I try imagining you are actually listening to me anyway. How come I don’t always hear your voice? If you’re always with me, then why do I feel so alone and hopeless? Am I a lost cause, Father? Should I just call it quits and give up?

And then the letter came; the letter that I opened without paying attention to the fact that it was sent to me by accident. The address was the same as mine, but in a different state. I do believe, though, that somehow it was meant for me after all.

Dear friend (because I feel that you must think I am your enemy!),

I have missed you. I keep writing letters to you, but I haven’t heard anything back. I’ve tried calling, but your number has been disconnected. I’m not sure if you even know how hard I’m trying to get a hold of you. Could you take a moment out of your busy day to drop me a note or give me a call and let me know? It’s so frustrating when you’re desperately trying to get a hold of someone so special and dear to your heart, but you just can’t get through to them. Look, I love you very much and think about you all of the time, but I don’t want to be pushy or keep bugging you if I’m no longer wanted in your life. Just know, my friend, that whenever you really decide that you want me, I’m here for you. I’m thinking of you, and missing you more than you can possibly know, even if you have forgotten all about me. You might have somehow misunderstood my intentions last time we talked; quite honestly, I think you were so busy talking that you couldn’t hear what I was saying. Can we give it another try, and this time, tune in and listen with your heart so that you don’t misjudge me, okay? Peace? I love you, and I hope to hear from you soon.

All of my love forever,

Your Best Friend Since Childhood…and don’t ever forget it!

Lord, I want to say that I get it. You are speaking to me, but I’m disconnected…not listening. I’m too busy talking and complaining and worrying about life’s obstacles that are being thrown my way. You must be pretty frustrated because you love me so much, and here I’m always thinking you really don’t care, and that you don’t listen, when in fact, you do. You won’t force yourself on me, but you want to let me know that no matter what I do, even when I completely forget about you, you are here for me.

Father, I’ve grossly misunderstood because I thought I was listening, or maybe I expected to hear an audible voice break the silence; I don’t know. You’ve been with me since childhood? Oh Lord, I should be the one asking you if we can give it another try; but you’re so loving and compassionate, you are happy to receive me just the same! I left, believing I could do it on my own. Here I am, Lord; and this time, I’m prepared to tune in and listen, and I am ready to give up and let you do it for me. In fact, every time I asked you if I should just give up, you were saying, Yes! Surrender yourself to me!”

My dear Father, I have been a dishonorable child, and have insulted your integrity. With a humble and convicted heart, I am coming home!

(NOTE:  This is a made up story the Lord laid on my heart last night.  For all of us, there have been times parts of this story are very true.  However, apparently God knows of someone who really needed to read this.  God bless you!)

Luke 15:11-32

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Parable of the Lost Son

11 Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. 13 And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. 14 But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. 15 Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’

20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring[a] out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

25 “Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. 27 And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’

28 “But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. 29 So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. 30 But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’

31 “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. 32 It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.’”

    Great story Lyn, agree with Steve…this will speak to many. This certainly resonates with me, you see I was the prodigal…and that is a true story.

    Blessings to you

      Amen, Gomer… in ways, this story is true for so many of us… we’ve all been frustrated from time to time, feeling as if God is ignoring us or can’t hear us. Yet in truth, He is always listening. God bless you Gomer and thank you so much for your comments!

    We are always looking from our end, forgetting we will get it all, if we pause to look from where He is and what He is saying….for His greater perspective and leading. All of self puts God at the door of our hearts…Him looking in and we losing His peace and joy.

    Lyn, You are a good story teller for lessons in our relationship with our heavenly Father. Keep it up.

    • Lyn Leahz says:

      Our feeble minds just cannot begin to comprehend all of God’s ways. He has even warned us that our ways are not His ways…and His ways are not ours. But praise the Lord, some day very soon, we shall all understand…someday soon…we shall be kneeling at the feet of God where we belong! My only hope is that I can do all I can do in the short time that is left to please Him so that He can gaze down upon me with a smile and tell me that I did good. That, to me, would be the biggest reward heaven has to offer. On this earth, the biggest reward for me is knowing I brought someone hope and peace in Christ Jesus our beloved Lord and Savior by leading them to the truth…and that they are no longer hell bound! There is no joy like the joy of knowing that all of heaven is singing praises for another child of God being born into God’s family…and that I was the one chosen for such a special task as leading them to that great divide in the heart; the place where the hopelessness and death is cut away, and the hopefulness, newness, and eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is birthed! Praise God!

      By the way, the Lord gave me this last night..I never received a letter, and this story is not about me. It was just given to me by the Lord for someone else..I don’t know who..but someone. I did state this at the bottom, but have had a few people who thought this has happened to me. Whenever I write something, I will always let everyone know in the post whether it is real or not. God bless you!!!! Make beautiful music in your heart for the Lord….because Jesus is coming soon! ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫
