Joe describes how broken he felt when he came to know the Lord. Feelings of abandonment and being lost caused him to seek Christ. He knew very little about God. All he remembered were things he had heard over the years. His knowledge about God was nothing more than a distant memory. Today Joe can say that through prayer he feels the closeness of a relationship with God. He expresses how when he calls out to God, he feels that God truly hears him. Joe’s personal relationships have also been restored because of God. Once in Joe’s life, his own mother had abandoned him. But today, Joe has repaired the damage from the past. He is now welcome in his mother’s home and even has his own room!
There is very little we can be sure of in our lives. Yet there is one thing we do know. When we call out to Christ, He hears us. It is through the comfort we receive from His presence, that we have strength to persevere.
“The eyes of the Lord are too the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry”
