God is always listening. He hears us, and better yet, faithfully responds to our prayers and petitions that align with His will (however, it sometimes seems that the way He chooses to answer looks radically different than what we may expect. Do I understand it? Not necessarily. However, do I trust God? Yes.)
And by the way, I am completing my second week of Daily Hopeful, and I continue to be amazed at how much encouragement and hope the Bible provides. I don’t know what you’re going through right now, but stay faithful in the Word – there truly are some hope-filled gems in there!
