Sometimes life is like that. The haunting sense of loneliness can touch our lives in the middle of a crowd or in the silence of the wood. I recently had a day like that, surrounded by life in my urban neighborhood I felt lonely so with journal in hand I sought refuge in a familiar setting.
Living on the outside looking in.
Refuge in a coffee shop
In the middle of a crowd,
In the middle of noise and nothingness
Seeking a place, seeking…
In the middle of the crowd, Lord
Help me hear your voice,
In the middle of the silence, Lord
Help me hear your voice
In the middle of life, Lord
Help me live in you, Lord.
