Sitting in the quiet and darkness – I need you, God

Lord, it’s 11:43 pm and the house is quiet. All lights are off except for a nightlight in the kitchen and the faint light coming from the air purifier. I doze in and out of sleep but I am restless.

I ask for an encounter. I need an encounter. My life is not what I thought it would be. I know my time will come and I can see how you are directing it but that doesn’t make things easier. My anxiety is on high and it is now affecting my health. I ask for an encounter because I KNOW I need you. You are my God, My Savior, and my all. I know I need to have faith and I do have faith but there is this faint voice that tells me to give up and there is no hope. I love because of you. I set my eyes on you. I ask for the strength to continue to put one step in front of the other; stepping out in faith. I need you Lord!
