8 Responses to Hello? Do You Hear Me, Lord?

  1. Thank you, Karen, for reminding me of God’s promises and how faithful God is. I’ve been trying to focus on God’s character and His truth instead of how I sometimes “feel.”. Lisa, the song is a new one for me. I can really identify with the cries in it, and I love the hope it gives. Thank you.

  2. Great message in your devotional Karen! Thank you 🙂

    I loved the analogy with the microphone & really smiled & could relate! I needed this message & this particularly spoke to me today: “The Bible is one hundred percent true and we can trust His promises. He’s never broken a single one of them.” Amen! I am thankful that God is ever faithful. God bless. Lotsoluv Kerryn

  3. Thx Kerryn

  4. Karen – so can relate to your message today. “Feelings” can be all over the place any time of the day or night. How grateful I am for God’s steadfastness and his understanding all of my feelings and wrapping me up in his care no matter how I am feeling.


  5. Karen, I chuckled inside when I read the title of your devotional and then saw the huge microphone!

    But what you say here is serious and really important. The Christian life is a life of faith isn’t it? I appreciate the reminder that the truth doesn’t go “all over the place” like our feelings do. The Bible and the Lord’s promises remain the same. He’s our Rock.

    I can sure relate to this devotional and appreciate the fact that you shared it with us.

    Grace & peace,

  6. I recently came across the beautiful story of a woman named Mary Varick. At only 16 months old Mary contracted polio and spent the rest of her life confined to a wheelchair. Then at the age of 36 she faced another trial, cancer, and was told she had only months to live. Mary took a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Anne in Quebec and asked not to be cured of her cancer or to walk again. She just wanted a little more time with her family. Upon returning home, Mary’s cancer went into remission and she made a promise to God. She devoted the rest of her life to leading pilgrimages around the world that would help other wheelchair bound individuals come closer to God. Mary knew that she had something special to offer through her suffering. She believed that God had invited her and her disabled brethren into His “inner circle”. Their pain was an instrument of grace that could be used to bless others. Sometimes I feel as if God is not listening. Why hasn’t He answered my prayers for healing? Maybe He did respond. Maybe the answer was “no”. Could it be that God has something special planned instead? Maybe He wants us to draw closer to Him and come into His inner circle. All we have to do is accept the invitation.

  7. Thank you so much for this. It reminded me of a quote from Ann Voscamp’s book 1000 gifts, ‘God is always good and I am always loved.’ I have found myself repeating this often especially when God doesn’t answer my prayers in the way I want him to!!
