Where Am I now?

I was wondering through Borders tonight, looking at Christian books. I picked up the Message:Remix by Eugene Peterson and read through. the introduction and just longed and thirsted for the kind of relationship with Jesus, God's Living Word, that Peterson describes. My family was at Church at AWANA and I was alone. Lonely. I long for closeness with Jesus instead of busyness and exhaustion.

My soul feels dry and crusty and I need Jesus. I've let work crowd him out. I feel distant. I feel tired. I feel alone. I feel empty. I need Jesus, oh, I need Jesus.

It is the Christmas season, and I feel like the Grinch. I need to sit at Jesus' feet like Mary, instead of running around drained and sapped of all peace
