my daughter crystal has a suspicious

growth that we’re trying to get some

clarity on so it’s been one thing after


in a concentrated period of time causing

my granddaughter to raise the question

in the words of Marvin Gaye what’s going

on so much so many tears so many

unanswered questions one thing after

another and many of you know what it is

to have one thing after another to

struggle with the pain of life’s

realities that are inescapable and if

you’ve not been here yet keep living


because life has a way of throwing


the unexpected sometimes you even get

hit by the pitch God’s people were

struggling in Isaiah 40 there was

struggling bad as this chapter

prophesied the Babylonian captivity and

it speaks about their struggle and they

asked in verse 27 or they say my way is

hidden from the Lord and the justice

dumi escapes the notice of my god what

they’re asking is God what’s going on

God where are you don’t you see my pain

my way is hidden from you you don’t see

what I’m dealing with because if you saw

it you would not let it happen like this

this way this long and this much the

justice do me it’s not fair this isn’t


I shouldn’t be hurting like this crying

like this struggling like this

discouraged like this where are you God

and while we could all be spiritual and

pretend we never think that way there

are those times in our lives when God

seems to be conspicuously absent

unlocated Oh Joe put it this way he says

I look north and couldn’t find it

I looked east I look West I kept I kept

looking and I couldn’t find it the

absenteeism of God the sense that my way

is hidden from him he doesn’t see what I

see feel what I feel and understand what

I’m going through and while we can

intellectually know better it doesn’t

change the broken hearts the shed tears

or the enormous pain of life’s reality

these people thought that God had failed

them that if relinquished is on his

covenant promises there are those times

in life when it looks like God is

letting somebody put a rake over your

soul where you push the panic button and

you feel let down where you’re no longer

singing the gospel you’re singing the


because sadness has overtaken you and

celebration is just not where your

emotions are they needed God to


in the circumstances that was causing

them pain I don’t know what your

circumstance is today probably most of

you have one or who’ve had one or you’re

headed toward one whether it’s

unfulfilled dreams desires that have not

come through pain that have not been

relinquished hurt that won’t go away

this is what they were facing where are

you God when my world is falling apart

when God speaks into their situation he

does not speak scientifically

technologically academically or

philosophically he speaks theologically

because he raises the issue in verse 28

do you not know have you not heard the

everlasting God the Lord the creator of

the ends of the earth does not become

weary and tired his understanding is

inscrutable he says when your world is

real evidence members of Oak Cliff is

falling apart this is not the time to

run from him this is the time to run
