Prayer

Far, near, and everywhere

“Am I a God who is only close at hand?” says the LORD. “No, I am far away at the same time. […]  Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?” (Jeremiah 23:23-4; NLT).


Lord,
On the days
When you seem far away
I reach out to you
Across a vast and empty space
As best I can;

And on the days
When you seem near,
I reach in to you,
Deep within my heart and soul
As best I can;

For you are far away,
And near,
Within, without –
And everywhere.
