But many others of us have people in our lives who are mean and hurtful to this day and make life feel unbearable.

Sometimes asking for help in hard times seems impossible when it feels like no one is listening and no one cares. On the other hand, we all know what it's like to have a parent or teacher frustrated with us for not listening. Today we learn that God isn't frustrated with us at all, He is speaking to us all the time and how easy it is for us to hear His voice.

It can be difficult to imagine a loving, all-powerful God who allows the pain, suffering and heartache we see in the world and in the lives of those we love. Does He care? Is there a point to it all? How could He just let it happen?
