I think I put
in a box
as I can't find
Could it be because
I am not home
sipping my espresso
as I do every morning
in the same place at the same time?
Where is HE?
As I am away with my husband on a business trip,
I am in unfamiliar territory &I feel it~
as this morning isn't working out according to my usual plan.
Have I left GOD home
in the usual place where we meet every morning?
I think I put GOD in a box.
WHERE ARE YOU GOD?
I know you are with me wherever I go,
but right now I am getting frustrated
because YOU aren't showing up
in the way that I want YOU to~
in the way that you usually show up
when we have espresso together every morning.
I know this sounds silly,
but I am getting frustrated
because I don't know where GOD is.
Could HE be in a box back at my house
waiting for me to show up?
Or is HE right here next to me ~
sitting with me in my frustration,
sitting with me in this loneliness I feel right now,
sitting with me & typing these words to remind me
that HE doesn't live in a box
& that I sometimes put HIM there
to do what HE usually does for me
in the way that HE usually does things for me.
But this morning
is shaking things up & reminding me
that no one can put
in a box because a box can't contain all
WHO HE is
desires to be for you & I
~in the midst of the unknowns & in the midst of different
isn't an item on a checklist
Who has to perform for me when I ask HIM to
in the way that I want HIM to.
THANK YOU GOD
for getting me out of my box
and having me jumping into yours
because there is no place I would rather be
than to be with
because you are with me wherever I go
& I don't have to have an espresso
to know that you are here.
