THE PARABLE:

Never answers. Never.

Here are a few theories as to why:

1. He isn’t there to answer.
2. He sucks at communicating.
3. He doesn’t care.
4. I’m doing something wrong.
5. He’s out of range.
6. Either my phone’s not sending or his isn’t receiving.
7. Your guess is as good as mine.

Hypothetical questions (if he is “there”):
What could he have done anyway?
What would he have done anyway?

Dive down and swoop me up? A dramatic rescue?

That wouldn’t be his style. (If there is a “he” and if he has a “style”.)

So, even though I get frustrated and even angry, I get it.

I think.

    Within my philosophy, my focus is on the ‘right to enter’ rather than the apparent lack of response.

    I liken it to being the President’s son, and able to enter the Oval Office, and speak my mind. He listens. He represents power. I sense his presence and compassion. Very seldom do I sense him speaking an answer.

    And that is all ok. He is my Dad. I know he heard me.

    And that is enough to make me smile.

    I’m pretty sure I’m taking this differently than intended, but I still love it. I think that’s a wonderful depiction of what it felt like to be Christ on the cross… but if we were to swipe down to see the previous messages we would see the most beautiful conversation and relationship that has ever existed.

    Our own phones probably look much like this, but one day it will be otherwise… I look forward to that.
