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.

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

God,
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.

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

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