There is an art exhibit that has been set up in the Netherlands that is meant to help viewers feel like GOD is more accessible by having a phone number that gives you ‘God’s answering machine’. Even though I am not entirely sure what this exhibit looks like it has sparked some interesting responses globally. I was reading the article on BBC, and after reading noticed on the sidebar that BBC has a blog post where people can write what they would leave as a message for God. I began reading these and I became addicted. It was good to hear what others were thinking about God and faith. I really encourage you to read this.

I read 8 pages of responses thus far and my heart is broken and challenged by these peoples statements. I find it is easy to forget what the rest of the world thinks about God when you are at a place that encourages him so much.

As I was reading it I tried to imagine how it must impact God to hear these words that are so often silently spoken in peoples hearts… globally.

The concept of leaving a message to God is interesting to me too and that has fed into a lot of peoples responses, of frustration when they feel like GOD must not exist because he doesn’t ever seem to respond in their eyes.

I experience the silent times too. Where I feel like GOD has forgotten all about me or out of frustration with me refuses to speak to me. But I have more opposite experiences to counter the feeling of silence,  so I do not stay in that frustration.

check out the article and let me know what you think.
