There were no answers. Only tears.
The Lord continued, “Why only sing at fellowships and retreats? Why seek me only in times of worship? Why ask things so selfishly? Why ask things so unfaithfully?”
The tears continued to roll down my cheeks.
“Why are you ashamed of me? Why are you not spreading the good news? Why in times of persecution, you cry to others when I offer my shoulder to cry on? Why make excuses when I give you opportunities to serve in my name?”
I tried to answer, but there was no answer to give.

“You are blessed with life. I made you not to throw this gift away. I have blessed you with talents to serve me, but you continue to turn away. I have revealed my word to you, but you do not gain in knowledge. I have spoken to you but your ears were closed. I have shown my blessings to you but your eyes were turned away. I have sent you servants but you sat idly by as they were pushed away. I have heard your prayers and I have answered them all.”
“Do You Truly Love Me?”
I could not answer. How could I? I was embarrassed beyond belief. I had no excuse. What could I say to this?
My heart had cried out and the tears had flowed, I said, “Please forgive me Lord. I am unworthy to be your child.”
The Lord answered, “That is my grace, my child.”
I asked, “Then why do you continue to forgive me? Why do you love me so?”

The Lord answered, “Because you are my creation. You are my child. I will never abandon you. When you cry, I will have compassion and cry with you. When you shout with joy, I will laugh with you. When you are down, I will encourage you. When you fall, I will raise you up. When you are tired, I will carry you. I will be with you till the end of days and I will love you forever.”
Never had I cried so hard before. How could I have been so cold? How could I have hurt God as I had done?
I asked God, “How much do you love me?”
The Lord stretched out his arms, and I saw his nail-pierced hands. I bowed down at the feet of Christ, my Saviour and for the first time, I truly prayed.
