I Miss God - Words of encouragement

So, I just read through several more comments on my original post "I Miss God". I am so in awe of the fact that people continue to share their thoughts and create this place of encouragement for the next person searching for God online.

I just got a batch of Bible verses in my inbox and they are smacking me in the face. Thought I'd share a few words of encouragement.

For I am waiting for you, O Lord. You must answer for me, O Lord my God.

~ Psalm 38:15, NLT

I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain.

~ Psalm 3:4, NLT

I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.

~ Psalm 120:1, NLT

For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!

~ 2 Corinthians 4:17, NLT

Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.

~ John 14:1, NLT

And this one drives me insane!

Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.

~ Jeremiah 33:3, NLT

Insane because I truly felt like before I quit hearing from God, he was telling me REMARKABLE SECRETS about things to come. Not for me necessarily, but about things He was doing. And I went from a euphoric secret keeper to begging for a crumb. Aaaaaahhhhh... I guess I will keep asking and believe that answers and secrets will come again one day.

I Miss God - Give It Back

Heard this song a few weeks ago and felt it was somewhat of an anthem for us... the God Googlers.

Sixpence None The Richer - "Amazing Grace" (Give it Back) off the My Dear Machine ep.

I knew a song that played in me
It seems I've lost the melody
So please, lord, give it back to me
Yeah please lord, give it back to me
Years in the desert with no drink
Strike the rock, make it bleed
And please lord, give it back to me
Yeah please lord, give it back to me

If you'll blow on the embers
The light will shine on my face
The streams will run in the desert
And sing amazing grace

You're everywhere in every time
And yet you're alwyas hard to find
So please, lord, I don't wanna sign
No please lord, I don't wanna sign

I need your breath on the embers
I need the light on my face
I need the streams in the desert
That sing amazing grace
That sing amazing grace
