I need to hear from you
By Peter France
A monologue in which a girl muses why she doesn't seem to hear from God.
Designed to be accompanied by the Petra song, "I need to hear from you".
THANK YOU GOD! Exams are finally over! Lord, please let the markers
be kind to me. Especially when I got muddled in that last essay. And Lord,
could you please get that cute guy Trevor to show a bit more interest in
me? He's such a dish... Wonder if he'll be at the rave on Friday night?!
uh oh, there's a damp spot on the ceiling - I wonder if the roof is
leaking again? Must remember to ring the landlord... Which reminds
me, I don't suppose I can put that checkup off any longer. Lord, the tooth
seems to be getting worse, and I've asked you a dozen times to heal it.
Don't you care?
Where was I?... oh yes, Lord, now that exams are over, what am I going
to do? I could do that course, but it's a whole extra year, and I'd really
like to get a job like Susan's and earn some decent money...
Lord, why is it so hard to decide? Why can't you give me some help
here? Susan gets words from you just about every week in our small group.
What's so special about her? Why don't I? I wonder if she makes them up?
No, that's not fair....I suppose. Why is it so hard to hear from you? I'd
do anything just to hear from you... but sometimes it seems like you're
not even listening.
GOD: "I am"
Whoa... Lord, sorry, I didn't mean it, I mean I know you're there.
I just didn't expect to hear your voice.
Lord, ah, when I said I'd do anything, um, I don't really have to apologise
to Susan, do I? Lord?
