Man, the struggle is real. Moving is a pain. I moved to Sutton, finally, and have been here a week already. I no longer have to get up extra early to commute from Aurora, and I really appreciate the gas-saving I’ve been doing. But, moving is a pain. In May, I moved all my possessions … Continue reading Moving is a struggle

Waiting On God

nicky banzhaf

This past month has not been an easy one for me. I’ve felt the ground beneath me give way. I’ve felt like I was falling off the face of the earth, with no one left to catch me. I’ve cried. Then I’ve cried out to God. I’ve been so frustrated with Him. Where was He after all? Where was He in my suffering? Because I certainly couldn’t feel Him with me.

In the midst of the chaos, I wrote this poem to Him.

I am angry.

Confused.

Frustrated.

Lost.

Why, God?

Do you think it’s funny?

Laughing up there at my mess?

Throw me into the storm

you know

will sweep me

under. Let me be

thrown

tossed

scraped

against that pain again.

Grasping, gasping, searching.

For something,

anything

to pull me up.

I’m not laughing

if that means anything

to you.

But I am waiting.

Waiting on you.
