All Cried Out


I must admit sometimes

my faith begins to wane

I fast, pray, cry out to You

and still, I am in pain

I'm on my knees, on my face

and diligently search Your word

Yet I'm wondering why on this matter

Your voice I have not heard

I seek You in early morning

and late in the afternoon

I call on you in the evening

trying to keep my heart in tune

I praise You in the midnight hour

still, this thorn is in my side

I humble myself before You

desiring to remove all pride

Please send the desired answer

Hope deferred has caused much pain

I need Your help desperately

don't let me pray in vain

I'm trying hard to encourage myself

Remain in faith and not doubt

My tears have formed a river

And I'm all cried out

I can feel your torment and wonder.

I, too, have experienced this and am left wondering.

I am told sometimes he doesn't answer the way we want...but if I listen carefully I will hear his voice.

Great penmanship.

Yes Ms Dora that’s it

Good writing and the experience you describe is so relatable. Remaining in faith is important. It does not mean that we will always get the answer we want, but that we will remain faithful despite our disappointment.
