I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. Psalm 77:1
Surrounded by so much sorrow, so many needs, how do we find ourselves amongst this misery and what are we supposed to feel?
Happiness? Even in the moment of another’s pain?
Joy as our neighbor cries for their loss?
Who mourns with us when we can take no more?
From where does our support come?
How do we reconcile ourselves to this world?
Such darkness. We yearn for a glimpse of hope.
What do you want from us, God?
Where are you when we ask, “Where are you?”
And how do we fit into this intricate equation?
Meeting our own needs while being You for others?
Always one more group to serve, leaving us empty.
When do we stop and look inward at our lone, anxious selves if we are always busy reflecting you to others in Jesus’ stead?
We long for your peace with our innermost being.
Remind us that we are enough.
What we do is enough.
What we say is enough.
You are enough.
Fill us with your love for ourselves.
Give us Peace.
Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. Psalm 80:3
Do you listen when God reminds you to take time for yourself? Do you trust that He is enough?
