Lord You feel so far away

I feel like I am constantly seeking

But nothing is coming out of it

I am tired

 

                   I am right beside you.

                   I will meet you where you are, keep seeking me.

                   I see your struggles, I see your pain

 

This feels like an endless cycle

I wish that I could always be happy

Like everyone else

Why do you make me suffer?

 

                    This world will challenge you, tempt you, exhaust you

                    Trust in me

                    The happiness you desire does not compare

                    To the table I have prepared for you

                    

 

I feel unloved, unlovable

Unwilling to love

 

                     You are my first love

                     You will always be my love

                   

This world is so broken

Pride

Greed

Violence

Why do you allow this to happen?

 

                      

                       I will reach the darkest corners of this Earth

                       These are not products of my love

                       But of sin

                       Brokenness

                       Confusion

                       Do not be discouraged.

                       Have faith in me.

 

                               

I feel alone in my struggles

Nobody seems to understand

 

                      I will never leave you alone

                      My heart breaks as yours does

                      Ten times more

 

Were my good works not enough for you?

                      I require nothing of you,

                      You are already good because I made you.

                      You are set free because I have saved you.

 

I am tired

    

                       Rest in me.

       

  

                      

                        I am right beside you.

                        I will meet you where you are, keep seeking me.

                        You are my first love.

                        You will always be my love.
