Lord, sometimes you seem so far away.
Yet I know you are standing right here beside me, but I just can’t feel your closeness in the way that I need and long to experience.
Maybe it’s fear, maybe it’s doubt, or even confusion due to a life situation.
The world can sometimes come between you and I, when I let all these things overwhelm my thoughts and my heart.
So I ask you to come even closer, to touch my heart and soul, so I can truly “feel” your closeness in a deeper sense and greater way than I ever have before.
