My Book of Uncommon Prayers: To Feel

136 - Copy

Sometimes I feel like I am working on an old memory;

the passion is real, the memory strong, but

the hunger for the now is equally strong, and

I wonder where you are in the worry and the wildness of my heart and mind.

I miss the electricity and that forever-knowing.

The insights still come, and I identify inspiration, but

it comes like a blind date, or perhaps a gift in a sealed envelope,

delivered by a voiceless stranger.

The memory would be enough to carry me home, and

duty would be enough to fuel my resolve to do right,

be right,

and press on, but

I am aching and wondering if obedience would be better served with joy than pain.

I faith You, but in these swirling, unsettled times, I feel the need to

feel that You are near.
