This is what I was asking
Where am I today Lord
Who am I
And...where are You

Where have I gone
Where have I been
How did I get there
But really, most important
How do I get back

To You

"Lost" seems a good way to describe this feeling

Have I so lost myself in my many distractions
That I've lost complete sight of You
Gone too far away to hear Your voice
To know Your whisper

What I need most is Your perspective on life
Your eyes to see
Your ears
Your heart
To know Your love for me
And Your instruction
To know "we're good"

But I can't tell
I can't hear

Still, there was this sense

I don't like this feeling
But after all this time
I still know
No matter how it feels
You are still carrying me
And...that's kind of nice

And then I remembered
Jesus, they were spitting on Your face

and there You were, loving them
Only someone with a love like that,
Can I trust to love me to the end

And then I read
Ps. 32:10-11 (NIV) 

10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
    but the Lord’s unfailing love
    surrounds the one who trusts in him.
11 Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
    sing, all you who are upright in heart!

Rom. 8:31-39 (NIV)
 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? ...38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And then I knew
To my question, "Where am I?"
Your answer
    I'm in the middle of Your love,
    You are surrounding me
    Holding me
These struggles don't mean I'm away from Your love
In fact,
You are interceding for me in them
Thank You!
