God, are you listening? Are you truly there? Why so silent? I am tired. I am hurting, And my hope is slipping away. Am I wrong? To want to enjoy what you have given? I am on the backside of time. Life is going in fast forward- I cannot keep up. So little is left. And I am being buried; Buried by all that needs doing. I cannot get to it all. Please slow the ticking of the I need Your presence- Made. Known.
