A Letter to the Desperate Soul

11 June, 2021

Dear the desperate soul,
You are here and your heart is heavy. You have questions and are looking for an assurance. Your heart is restless and you feel like at the end of the rope. When my world suddenly crumbled before my eyes, I was desperate and looking for an answer, looking for God to answer me.

"Where are YOU?"
I need You to come through right here right now
I hear nothing but silence
My pillow is soaked in tears
And my heart is broken

"Where are YOU?"
I feel like sending an empty prayer
I am desperate and lost
I need You to rescue me
Right here right now

"Where are YOU, God?"
I don’t know if I can go on anymore
I am tired and weak
Please tell me what to do
Please show me where You are

Then I realize that You have been with me all along

In the process, You are working
in a way beyond my comprehension
You soften my heart
You adjust my perspective
You rebuild my dream 

It’s always been your gentle hug
It’s always been your soft whisper

"I love you, My child
I know what's going on"

Your voice carries me through
You have been here all along

Dear the desperate soul,
exactly ten years ago, in the year of 2011, my life was flipped upside down. My husband, the father of my children died. It was never a part of my plan, in fact it was the worst nightmare turned into a reality. I was broken, wounded, angry, and desperate. I needed an explanation, I needed to hear God to tell me what's really going on. 

Friends, I may not know what you are going through right now but I want you to know that God cares about you and most importantly, He hears you. The deepest & loudest cry of your heart, He hears, each one of them because you are precious to Him, regardless your flaws, weaknesses and mistakes. You are not alone.

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18 (ESV)

With love,

PS: If you ever need somebody to talk to, I am here
