Longing for God

Hello to all readers. Like many other people, I have days when God seems far away, and I just can’t seem to connect with him at all. These are the days that help to build up my faith, because rather than experiencing God’s closeness, I learn to trust that he is near…

Longing for God

* Lord, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Saviour (Psalm 38:21-2).
* …God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
* …he is not far from any one of us (Acts 17:27).
* The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth (Psalm 145:18).

I’m reaching out to you,
But my prayers are so heavy,
And my heart is empty.

How will I get through the day
If I can’t sense your presence?

Yet I know you are with me
When I feel empty,
Just as you are
When I overflow with joy and praise.

Please fill me with love for you,
And for all people,
For I can do nothing
Without your help.
