I plead, tell me where You are? Where can I meet You, to hide in You totally and cannot be anywhere but in You!

“You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from You” (Psalm 16:2)

O! Hurry and make my soul Your dwelling and my heart Your resting place.
Come...for I am sick with love.

If you find my beloved, that you tell him I am lovesick” (Song 5:8)

And my distance away from You is death to me, but Your name brings life to my soul!

Christ who is our life” (Col 3:4)

Why do You hide Your face from me.

“Truly You are God, who hide Yourself, O God of Israel, the Savior” (Isaiah 45:15)
