Why are you so far and yet so near?
It’s in the moments of grief that I cry out to you,
and moments of joy I forget about you.
Thank you for the gifts of joy and sorrow,
because both are great teachers.
May I accept life in all of it’s fullness.
Where have you been?
Oh, you were with me all along.
Sometimes You are so close that
I cannot see you.
Beloved, I am weak and wary.
I want to run away from my existence,
Your love seems so far away.
Then like a warm blanket,
Your presence folds around me,
holding me still till I find find center
Passions burns out,
but Your love is an
trusting in Your love,
even when I want to run away.
help me to run towards,
to be held in Your warmth.
My heart melts for You.
Form me again in Your love and Way.
Love folds into me like waves of the sea.
Your love is like the ocean,
fathomless and deep.
I want to be a devoted lover of Your depths,
like Jacque Cousteau, diving deeper in the
Ocean of Your love.
I shed dead weights that drag me down,
and find life giving air and freedom in
being loved and loving You.
