Scripture With Direction

It is a captivating silence
that fills my room and heart.
When your presence enters in,
from the rest of the world I depart.
I call on your name, and you answer,
"Yes, child I am here."
And so our conversation begins,
all worries disappear.
James 4:8
'Draw near to Godn and He will draw near to you.'
So real,
and completely true.
As I lay on my bed,
there is an outpouring of emotion.
Hurt for the world and its lack of devotion.
Why can't everyone feel the power behind your name?
Why can't they see?
If they just opened their eyes to your love and grace...
If they just had faith and would believe...
I pray.
I pray.
I pray for the lost.
I want them to be found.
Help me to search out those souls in utter darkness,
who scream without sound.
I lay there knowing what I have to do...
Acts 18:9 and 10.
'Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent;
for I am with you.'

This is really great. I don't know if you've ever read any books by Francine rivers? she's a great christian writer and her mark of the lion series really helped me be motivated to pursue my faith that i had just about given up on. I think that God meant for me to read the books, and i thank you for your prayers for the lost because i am still trying to find God and let go of my doubts.
God Bless,

thank you :) I will definitely keep them in my prayers. hmm I'll have to check out her books! I've never heard of any books by her-thank you for recommending :D. and I hope that you gain your faith back because it truly is the best thing to have especially when everything else is gone.
