Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 03/02/2014

Every so often we find life feeling like too much. We are not sure what to do with ourselves.

This poem came out of one of those days. It just felt like I was disconnected from God, almost as if He had pulled away.

One of the amazing things about these moments, though, is that if we continue to cling to our Heavenly Father we find so much joy and strength on the other side.

However, as Mother Teresa would have attested to, sometimes this can go on for years. I am sure she would still attest to it being worth clinging to God, anyway.

We await a far greater life of joy, peace, and love with our God, and the promise of this was given three days after Jesus died on that cross.

Hold on. Jesus is coming!

when i do not feel near You

it is when time drags on
when i do not want to move
it is when i feel numb
when i do not feel near You
it is when time feels surreal
when i feel old and used
it is when i can eat no meal
when i do not feel near You
it is when time eats away
when i feel i cannot do
it is when i waste away
when i do not feel near You
