Psalm of Lament

Overwhelmed, drowning, barely able to keep it together,
I cry out,
God, where are you?  Where am I?
I feel the waters covering my head—
I am left gulping for air.

I need you to hear my voice calling you.
I need you to throw me a life preserver.
I need you to rescue me.

I long to be set upon the beach.
I long to be dried with a warm towel.
I long to feel your touch and experience your embrace.

You are closer to me than my breath
You hear my smallest of cries
Your eyes are always upon me.  

I trust that you are here with me.
I believe that you will not allow me to drown.
In this assurance, I can float.
