My Lord, please tell me where You are.
Your Word says You are near,
But though I search, I cannot find
The proof that You are here.
I find it difficult to pray.
I seem to talk to air.
I read Your Word and do believe
When it says You are there.
Though I believe, I cannot see
Or feel You by my side.
I feel alone and that my life
Is just some pointless ride.
It’s leading nowhere (so it seems);
I don’t know where to turn.
My heart is heavy and my eyes
Are filled with tears that burn.
Please don’t abandon me, oh God.
Without You, I am lost.
I’m like a ship upon the waves,
So helpless, tempest-tossed.
I’ll turn again, as in times past,
To memories of You
And what You’ve done for me before
Until You’re back in view.
I know that if I read Your Word
And do not fail to pray,
I’ll once more see You in my life
And You’ll show me the way.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
