If I Scream Will The Trees Hear Me?

Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

Lord, I write what You tell me and they do not wish to see.

My Child, they will see in time. It will be too late for some but not for others. Do not dispair, there are some who will listen and repent. Continue in your work because My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. They do not hear My Voice.

Father, they are willfully not paying attention to You! The time is so short. Why won't they see?

Child, I have shown them Who I am from the beginning. I put My Word deep into their hearts but the sin of this world has hardened many to what I say. Yet, there will be some who hear. Continue to write, Child. Their heart will be touched. It is not you who draw them but Me.

So many are hurting, Lord. So many are lost and alone, without You because they choose not to see You in everything growing, in the gentle breeze of the warm summer's day, in the doe eating grass with her young. They only see their hurts, the bills, the sins in the news. They are driven by their fickle feelings, hating others because of differences instead of loving because of similarities. They are created in Your image but all they see is skin tones. They call hatefilled lies out to their brothers, thinking that the brother is their enemy.

Love them. They are mine own creation. I have breathed life into each one. They reject Me because of lies and the sins that abound but some will come. Some will hear their hearts and come to Me. I await each one.

Father, are You truly in charge of this world? Some say it does not look like it at all.

Each breath of life is Mine. Each child is given of Me. They have choices. I weep as they choose death instead of life. I give freely because of the death of Mine Own Son, who gave His life for the creation. My kingdom will come, My Son shall reign forever and ever. I am in charge. There is nothing hidden from Me. I will repay in due season.

Lord, if I pray, do You hear me?

Even the trees hear your cry, Child. Go in the peace that I have given you.
