Everyday He Hears

Isn't it hard when you're praying for yourself or even someone else and you're just pleading with God, asking Him to help me and because it’s such a clear answer and solution in your mind you can’t believe He’s not answering like you think He should!?  It can seem like God “goes dark” when you don’t hear what you want to hear.  I'm in a situation right now with someone who just wants answers and they want their answer to be “yes, here’s the solution you asked for.”  I’ve come to realize the best thing I can say is, “I’m so sorry for the wait. I don’t have the answer but I know He does. In the meantime I do know He cares.  If I really believe there is a God and He listens and loves me then I have to recognize that my timing is not His. His answer may be “yes,” “no,” or “wait.”  Remember God is always listening, always loving and will never let you go. Hold on. There is always hope.
