I Miss You - I know you know
Someone said they missed you, Lord, and all of a sudden, I felt it to my core
I missed you so much and I have no idea when it started to happen
When did it get to the point where I feel like I haven't seen you or heard from you, haven't been near you in years?
I don't like it.
I don't like not knowing where you are. I don't like not knowing when I stopped yearning to be alone with you,
to listen to you, and not just talk.
Your words seem to have lost significance with me, they had become somewhat of a cliche.
They are now said just to make people believe you are still somewhere, even when I haven't checked to make sure you are really there.
I mean I know you are everywhere, I don't doubt you, do I, or does it seem like I do?
"God bless you"- but did you really?
Did me saying that, without the least bit of conviction, change anything for the person I said it to, or even anything for myself?
I need to go forward, not back, to a time when I feel you through your words.
Through songs, through scripture, through others.
I need to know how to see you through divine interventions and discernment.
See the snakes among the Eves and Adams.
We can be redeemed. I can be redeemed.
Just help me Lord, because, I miss you. And I know you know.
