“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34: 18
I feel You! You are all around.
I cannot miss the feeling of your presence,
as my life is a joy to live.
I saw you in the face of my children,
when they were born.
I know you are with us,
when we pray in our church prayer corner;
Your comfort is warm;
Your grace is a blessing.
Why do I miss your presence,
when I am in pain and when I am lost,
when I have crossed into an unfamiliar place,
when I am depressed?
Why do I feel alone and abandoned?
Why do I think you are not
with me during these bad times;
why do I doubt your presence?
While on the cross,
Jesus asked why you had forsaken him;
this showed the humanity of Jesus,
the suffering side.
It is the human side of me that doubts.
It is the human side that loses faith.
It is my spiritual side that knows
You are always present in my life.
