“God must be busy….”
Strong words rarely spoken. Not out loud anyway. If they are uttered, it is usually under our breath in a moment of exasperation. A moment of feeling invisible and unimportant. Overlooked.
Still, it’s a common thought when prayers seem to go unanswered. When tragedy strikes without warning, or the diagnosis comes with a dismal outlook. Or when Satan appears to be winning his quest to pull our loved ones closer to the path of destruction he so desires for them.
Somewhere in the back of our minds, we wonder, “Can God even hear my prayers? Maybe He is just too busy to handle this right now.”
