in the shadows

i have no trouble seeing him in the light of day
God stands there, strong and bold, as i pass him by
pat him on the back, tell him ‘well done, creator’ then
mosey on my way, undisturbed by his tears

he’s harder to find in the shadows
darkness obscures his loving features
demons are alive and dangerous
and fear makes me tremble, fall

yet it’s in the loneliness of night when an embrace feels best
and i feel you Lord, wrapping your arms around me now
even though
it’s hard to see
your face

    Sometimes I have a harder time seeing God in the light of day. Its easier to forget Him when I’m not scared or distressed. I may refuse His help and comfort in the dark though. Its a confusing circle.
