O God,
Where have you been?
Why did you leave me,
When I needed you most?
Do you not truly care?
You promised
You would never forsake me
Where did you go?
Did you not hear me,
When my heart cried out to you?
Was your ear deaf?
Are you void of feeling?
Do you not see these tears on my face?
Oh, why did you leave me?
Why did you leave?

My child,
Where have you been?
Why did you leave me?
Do you not know
How much I truly care?
I promised
I would never forsake you
I was always right there
I heard you,
When you cried out in your anguish
My ear heard every word
My heart broke for you
I shed tears along with you
I never left you
Rather, you left me
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

~ St. John 14:27 (KJV)

It's sad, but it's true. People are always wondering where God is, and how He can allow so much bad to come about. They think: "If God really loved me, He wouldn't have let this happen to me in the first place. He probably doesn't even care." God does indeed care, far much more than we realize. Do you honestly think He takes pleasure in our suffering? I'm sure your parents weren't always there when you got hurt; did that mean they didn't love you?

Furthermore, if God prevented every single bad thing from happening, we wouldn't learn and grow much, would we? Our lives would have no real meaning, would they?

I've had times like this. I'm grateful He is understanding and is always there to catch me when I run back. (I don't have to run back so often now- I don't leave. It's been a long time learning, but He has been patient throughout.) Thanks for sharing- you don't know how many lives this may have touched.

No, I don't know. It's amazing how far one's influence can spread.

Praise the Lord you wrote this! People sit and wonder why God left them, but really they left Him. God is always with us, but we can leave Him by stiff arming Him and turning a deaf ear to His instructions, His Holy Word, the Bible.
