God, Can You Hear Me
by Candace Saxon
"God, can you hear me?" I ask everyday
"God, are you listening?" I ask as I pray
Until one day I asked again, "God are you there?"
Finally, He spoke to me, but it wasn’t the answer I expected to hear
He told me that I was kind and that I had a task to do
My task was to tell others about Him
And give other people a chance to ask, "God can you hear me?" too
I then realized that God had been listening all the time
He has heard me when I needed help
He had heard me when I was full of joy
He had also heard me when I was in pain
I then realized that I no longer had to ask, "God can you hear me?"
