I began the series of questioning again.

God took in all the queries I threw at Him, me being His frantic interviewer. Most of them weren’t new; I ask a lot of things over and over again, common ones being “Why?” and “When will this ever end?”; provoked by my utmost impatience, I always demanded Him for an answer. I do most of the talking until I run out of things to say.

And yet no thunder or ray of light would appear from the sky, just like how the miracle stories were written in the Scriptures by our forefathers; not even a voice would speak to me to let me know I was conversing with someone. God would remain silent, calm and stillness being His nature. And only the mute walls and the lingering silence of the room and my emotions coming to a demise seemed to keep me company.

There was no one else around, but I knew I wasn’t alone. I never was.

  6. aaw, such a sad looking sky. i love to watch this scenery while i'm in the mood to sit down & spring some thoughts. i love your words anyway & i also believe that God is around us. we're never alone.


  7. Sometimes I feel as though God doesn't listen..but I know that we are never alone

  8. I know we are never alone, but the more I ask Him, I feel more hollow and empty...

  11. Lovely words yet again. Reminds me of how often I find myself questioning God instead of just leaving it up to Him.


  12. I don't know if there is any God, but... I'm sure it's all up to you to find the answers :)...

  13. You are never alone Irene. And this brings peace to our life and mind. God is always there, even when we think he is not. He just have a way to help us deal with our issues, way we might not understand.
    Take care dear. xx

  14. I do this sometimes also, but even worse are the times when I do not feel like talking to God at all...That is when I seem to really lose my peace and joy.
    Blessings and love~ Lisa

  22. I usually blame God though, a part of me don't think God exist, but I totally believe about your death relatives wandering around you.

  23. Yes. as long as you are faithful to God, you would never feel alone :)

    by the way, I know it's kinda late. But I just realized that you're from Philippine and I'm so sorry about what happened there while ago (typhoon haiyan).

    big hug,

  25. Beautiful photos,and I think that you never alone.


  26. Indeed, no one is never alone. You put deep thoughts in this post, Irene. It's a good read. :)

  27. Such is the difference between us and Him. His replies gain clarity with time.

    The last line reminds me of a beautiful quote by Cecelia Ahern, "If we're all alone, then we're all together in that too."

  28. There were times in my life that I demanded to know "why" and "when would this end"? This past year I learned that God is listening, but he works in his own time. My pleading didn't make him work any faster, but when my prayers were finally answered I laughed and said, "He really was listening." I think you will too when the time comes. I'm praying for you! xoxo
