Once again I looked up into the universe and saw only empty space—the magnitude of it all no longer amazed me. It was just space.
It’s not that I don’t believe you exist. I would like to think that, it would be easier, but it’s too hard to shake a life time habit. No, I just know you will not intervene in my life. I read the testimony of drunks wandering into a church and their life took on dramatic new beginnings. I wander in sober and go out with little relief in my heart.
So now there is just an empty space where you once lingered. I miss You. I miss the lift that having faith provided. I’ve come to You so many times but now my heart is too heavy to move any more. I figure you know where I live so I wait on You. I hold tight that my works should reflect You so I go forth trying to make a difference in someone’s life. I’ve given up on mine but maybe there’s hope for them. I’m not looking for recognition; I just want You to know I got the big message okay.
I try not to look at the sky at night any more. Infinite space makes You seem more out of reach. The world’s is crazy so I understand my pocket of grief must seem minor. It’s okay. I’ll cope. I guess this is where I say Amen till next time God. I think I’ll find a smaller space to pray in too.
