Lord, where are You?
I am where your songs of praise find a listening ear.
Then I’ll keep singing.
I am where your name is written in the book of the blessed.
Then I’ll feel like one gathered in to full welcome.
I am where the names of every star are stored.
Then I’ll appreciate every star and laugh and guess its name.
I am where your aching heart finds the softest of bandaging.
Then I’ll moan no more.
I am the answer to every question.
Then I’ll ask You all my questions.
I am the way up when you are crushed, and the way down when you are proud.
Then I’ll need your kindness to help me repent.
I am behind the clouds, holding the rain.
Then I’ll trust. And marvel.
I am deep where food begins behind sun and soil and seed.
Then I’ll taste it as coming from You.
I am at the seat of immovable Love.
Then I’ll fear You.
I am among the shields that protect you.
Then I’ll fear nothing.
I am within you, communing.
Then I’ll be still and love You.
I am where weather is spoken – ice or flowing water.
Then I’ll not murmur.
I am where my Word begins, and my Word is love to you.
