I can't always feel You
when the walls are closing in
Sometimes everything
is just too much
and I reach for those arms
to hold me safe
a chest to rest my head against
Warmth against the cold
But the arms I long for
aren't always Yours
I run for human strength
and forget about You,
the One who hung the stars,
the One my heart should beat for,
just because I can't feel You
But know I do ache for You
for my tears are strongest
when I think of being
wrapped up in You
Remind me that flesh fails
No arms are perfect but Yours
Only You can heal
Only You bring peace
All I need is You
I couldn't even pray because I couldn't put my prayers into words, so I wrote this. Sometimes being safe is someone's arms sounds wonderful, but most of the time I don't care for God's arms as much. Sometimes I think that being able to feel an embrace is worth more than whose embrace it is.

I know almost how that's like...when you just can't find the words to pray- and yet He's still there with you :heart:

I feel the same way. I keep forgetting to put God first, and he is the one who we have to put first

I dont like poetry much, but this poem is outstanding =D
