God where are you?

God, where are you?
I'm looking, my eyes are wide open.
My heart and mind are seeking,
Everything in me is searching.

God, I need you now,
I need some hope, some sign.
God, please don't leave me alone,
Why are you so hard to find?

God please don't forsake me,
I am a sinner through and through.
I know I have not always been good,
But I have always loved you.

God, I am doing my best now.
I have learned my lesson from you,
But why have you left me now?
At this time I don't know how to get through?

God, I am so broken and scared,
I need you to love me again.
God please come back to me,
I really need you to be my friend.

God, why must I feel this pain,
Why has my life been so ruined?
Where do I go from here,
And why should i care again?

God, I want to die,
I want this pain to end.
I don't want to go on like this,
God, you promised to be my friend.

God, you have left me alone so long,
Now I am hopeless and broken.
God, I am done trying to find you,
It is time for me to find my end.

    A Message of Assurance:

    Even as you seek to find your end,
    Know that, for sure, you’re on the mend.
    God will always be your friend,
    With a loving hand to tend.

    You may not see him, but he’s there;
    Oh, believe it, very near.
    The physical burdens that you feel,
    With assurance he will heal.

    So, keep the faith, as God now asks.
    He is the solver of all tasks.
    Your friend, your savior, He who guides;
    Despite from you His face He hides.

    Beautiful and so terrible. I am listening while you speak. I hope that time has been good to you.

    How utterly gut-wrenching and yet so beautifully, diametrically expressed. I hope you're able to find the inner-peace you've sough, Jessica. I believe our purpose, and the purpose of this life, is the allowance of life to play out as it will without intercession from God. This echelon of consciousness is experiential which is why we are privy to each emotion, trial and tribulation we chance to experience within it. Please try not to blame God, but rather to understand the end game and why we're here. I bid you comfort and peace.

    When your life seem like an endless season of pain,
    And your hope is only a drop that remains,
    And hearts can be cold like the rain
    When all your hopes are drained.
    Our Heavenly Father is our refuge and strength
    A very present help in time of trouble !
    Trust Him, talk to Him.
    Read His Word !

    Your poem is very thoughtful Jessica, it is thorough pain we draw nigh unto God He is the sculpture with His chisel to deepen our dependence on Him. Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus ! Pain the last frontier for a Christian to conquer !
