"I'm certain I've become a nuisance" is her fear
For she grew used to the Love found here.
"I shall step back, though difficult it may be"
This was the silent promise she made to He.
Although plans often go awry (her experience has taught),
"This should be easy, keeping distant," or so she thought.
How often do we feel unworthy of love?
When things get tough, how often do we turn away, shutting down?
This is true in love, in life,
and in our individual spiritual journeys as well.
When I am filled with the Spirit I sometimes sabotage myself
with thoughts of how could Christ love me, a sinner?
When I am in my spiritual desert I find that
I have a tendency to feel abandoned by God.
So I run, I hide, praying for mercy.
But you know something?
The Lord is always there, ever vigilant.
His love is always there as well, if you choose to accept it.
And for that, I am eternally grateful.
