    This is a heart of brokenness and also in denial. The title is not talking about God denying him but his denial of God.
    Second stanza showed that his thoughts were different from God's and, in third stanza, he wasn't willing nor ready to submit to God's. Therefore he experienced much anguish in unheard prayers and brokeness as most of us have experienced.
    The last stanza, however, showed some wllingness to relent, to tune his will, to break that layer of ice he had formed. It is only when we submit our desires to God do we find peace.
    Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37: 4

    It was my experience too.(Report)Reply
