"...I WILL respond."

Dear Rabbi and/or God

It's not so much that I sometimes get the feeling that I got a negative response.
It's the feeling that I OFTEN get, that I am getting no response at all.
There are things that I have been asking for and about for YEARS.
Where is the response?

In addition to this as a personal matter, I am now involved in a close relationship with someone who was willing to "switch" from her previous background to keeping Shabbat and kashruth.
What do I answer HER when she asks,
"Where is God's response? ANY Response, at all."

Thank you, and
I hope You have a good year, too;
-Reuven Frank

Understanding the Replies

Perhaps you are looking in the wrong place for the answers. After more than 50 years in this world I can say definitively that G-d gives me exactly what I need most when I most need it. It is rarely what I ask for specifically but always solves the problem. So keep asking, but look more broadly at the events of your life when seeking the reply.

The response is the "close relationship with someone"

How did it occur that you are "now involved in a close relationship with someone"? That's a response and one which you seem to be pleased with. Best wishes to develop it well.

Incredibly moving and inspiring

This video managed with such brevity and charm to convey profoundly deep and elevating ideas. We were left non-plussed by just how meaningful and apt and inspiring this was. Thank you!
