Yesterday was a good day. Frankly, sometimes I get tired of writing this blog. I wonder, “Does anybody care about this stuff?” So yesterday I got some great emails from a number of blog readers and was encouraged

(thanks, folks). Monica was one – she wrote me yesterday with this question:

Hi Seth,

I came across your site today
in my desperate attempt to find anyone on the internet that wonders what
happens when you are convinced God isn’t listening. I couldn’t believe I
actually consulted the Google search box with that exact question… and to my
further amazement, there were actual links!!! Ha! God is good. One of them led
me to your site.

What do you do when you feel
like the wife in Hosea and just know that God has done what He did so many
times in the OT and turned His face from you. When nothing goes right? Nothing
is blessed. Every wall is up and you just throw your hands up and fall on your
face and whimper, “I give.”

Help?

Rather than pontificate, I thought I’d give you, my faithful blog readers, the opportunity to help. How would you respond to Monica? She needs counsel from people who have been there – as do we all! What is your experience?
