Power to Find Me
"You have the power to go where no one else can find me,
Yes, and to silently remind me
Of the happiness and good times that I know."
-Something in the Way She Moves-James Taylor
It is only You who has the power to go where no one else can find me. It's so easy for me to hide within myself, to hold everything inside, to reveal only insolence to others in an effort to hold them at bay and keep them out of my heart. If I try to reach out, to speak of my pain to others, my words always fall flat, like a raindrop splattered on the steaming asphalt; they evaporate before they are properly understood, even by myself. I feel like a lost soul. Yet with only a short time in the presence of Your precious Host You rush right to my center, to my aching heart, and You flood it with reminders of joy. The power of Your love heals me. You don't have to speak a single word, I feel Your love for me in the sacred silence, as my eyes devour Your beauty residing in the golden vessel. Use Your power sweet Jesus; find me.
