Far away

Why are you so far away when I groan for help? (Psalm 22:1; NLT).

“…he is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:27; NLT).

For what great nation has a god as near to them as the LORD our God is near to us whenever we call on him? (Deuteronomy 4:7; NLT).

For in him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28, NIV).

“Keep on seeking, and you will find” (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Today you seem
So far away.

Yet I know
You are near,
For in you I live
And move,
And have my being.

Please help me
To keep on seeking you,
With all my heart.

In Jesus’ name,
