I look up

I look up as if waiting for an answer, but the clouds don't reply.
I don't expect them to, but I do expect another voice.
A voice that hears not only my voice, but hears my heart.
This voice knows me inside and out and before my heart cries He knows.

I look around me and I feel empty.
What fills my life?
Who fills my mind?
Again I look up to find my answer.
When I look around I am empty.
I find longing in looking around me.
I long for things that I can't fully describe, but they are not mine.
I look up.

I look down.
My head is hung.
My eyes are filled.
My heart cries out.
Those around me do not hear.
I look up.

When I look up I am filled.
I am made whole.
I am loved.
No one can hold me like I am held when I look up.

My life has been crazy lately..... but even in the midst of everything I know that He loves me. :)
