Have you ever felt like God is absent when life is hard?

A guy from the Old Testament called Habakkuk did – and he lets God have it …

‘God, how long do I have to cry out for help before you listen?
How many times do I have to yell, “Help! Murder! Police!” before you come to the rescue?
Why do you force me to look at evil,
stare trouble in the face day after day?
Anarchy and violence break out,
quarrels and fights all over the place.
Law and order fall to pieces.
Justice is a joke.’ (Habakkuk 1v1-4by
