Why does it keep on coming back to the Christians?

Why is it that so many problems come back to Christians? Now music is a problem. Bono isn't such a great lyricist because not all of his lyrics praise God. WHAT THE NUMB LEMON ARE YOU ON ABOUT? Grr, I hate being known as a Christian. I'm not rejecting God, I fully believe in Him, but I don't want to be known as a Christian. I'm just struggling ... I don't know what to do. My prayers seem empty, God seems to be elsewhere, I feel like I'm going nowhere (Running to stand still), I feel like my faith is getting me nowhere, I feel ... so many things I can't describe. I need God here, I need Him now, I need Him to get off His cloud, get down here, set foot in my house, and help me out. While He's sitting up there on His cloud, smiling towards earth, He's not helping me.

Jesus never let me down
You know, Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door
(U2, If God Will Send His Angels)

To continue the train of thought along lines of IGWSHA, that song discusses that even if God were to send His angels or a sign, would that actually make everything alright? Would it? I don't know. I'd like to think "Yes, I'd see the sign, everything would be good again!", but is that really true? It's like "We thought that we had the answers/It was the questions we had wrong" (11 O'clock Tick Tock) - I think I have the answer (God sending a sign would solve it all), but would it really? I'm just so lost. So very lost. Can anyone help? I cry out for help from above, but alas, I'm not getting any. Maybe I'm just blind to it, I don't know, but I'm not getting it ...
