A retelling of Psalm 13: How long?

How long God?
How long before you let me see you again?
Have you forgotten me?
Are you here in the ash heap with me?
SHOW YOURSELF. Let me feel your warmth, your grace, your love.
Life is pain, it is consuming my soul.
I have lost faith that this pain will end.
Do you even see me struggling God?

HELP ME, help me to see where you are.
Remind me that I am not alone in what I bear.
Help me to accept the mysteries of life and faith.
Don’t let this swallow me up.

I long to trust that you are here
As I gasp for breath …
I exhale your name.
