I am so empty when don’t feel you near me.
How can I get closer to you?
I am blinded by tears running down my face – day and night.
People say to me, ” What good is your God now?”
I remember how I used to run to you so easily and feel your protection.
I had so much joy! I felt very blessed! I loved being surrounded by people who love you!
I know what to do. I need to turn back to you. I need to revive the hope that I have because you have saved me and you are my God!
When I am most miserable, I need to remind myself of how you have always taken care of me. You have always been faithful to me.
I need to feel your deep, endless love sweeping over me and through me again.
I know you love me. I feel you near me at night. When it’s dark…..and I’m praying.
But I still lose focus and I start complaining and whining.
When I focus on negative things, I start thinking that you have forgotten me.
I feel like the entire world is against me. I am so sick and tired. So helpless. So useless……..
The taunts of the Evil One echo in my head – where is your God now?
I need to stop letting my mind take me there. I need to focus on you, God, and spend as much time as possible with you.
You are my hope and salvation.
You will deliver me again!
