I remember as a young child standing in my room at my grandmother’s house, looking up to the heavens and saying, “God, if you are really there, why don’t you talk to me?”  I listened, but I did not hear a thing.
Many years later, after I had asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior and had invited Him into my heart, I heard God speak!  I was sound asleep and I heard “God is Love; Jesus is forgiveness.”  I woke up immediately.  I was so excited – I knew it was God!  I then woke my husband up and repeated the wonderful message God spoke to me (my husband surely thought I had gone crazy).  I wrote it down in a little book.  I was so thrilled… not only could I talk to God, but, God would speak to me!
Much later, after the Holy Spirit taught me to listen, I received this poem.  It reminded me that when I was a child, I called out that I wanted to hear His voice.  God had heard me!  I just could not hear Him.

There was a small girl child with eyes open wide to see.
She called out to the heavens to a word from God receive.
She challenged me to listen and to speak to her clear,
However, she did not have a heart able to hear.
Many years went by and I called out to her many times.
One fine day, her heart with truth aligned,
It still took her a while to rest enough to hear my voice.
Now the little child can daily draw near so her heart can rejoice.
