Is anybody home?God’s house was silent. Hollow.
I knocked again, Please, please … just open the door! I yearned. I still didn’t have words, but that was ok.
We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:26
After about three days of this silent struggle---by the way, do you remember there’s a parable about the persistent widow in the gospels? It’s there for a reason---widows need to be persistent!---So after about three days of this persistent begging, a small thought came to me: God speaks to us through His Word, and He’d written an entire book about widows—the Book of Ruth. Why don’t I take a look at it?
