Seeking You

I seek You, Lord, in the wilderness,

in the shadows and the desert of night;
night desertI seek You, Lord, on the mountaintops,

in the meadows and the oceans of light.


For, in You, who are Christ, is Fullness of Life.

The Heart of Reality is Yours.

Although crippled by disease, I'm fully alive in love. I write about the terrible beauty and sacred wonder of life, while living with physical disability and severe dependency. A revert to the Catholic faith through atheism, I'm not afraid to ask life's big questions. I explore what it means to be fully human through my weekly blog and have written a book: It's Good to Be Here, published by Sophia Institute Press.

  1. Hi Christina. This is lovely! Reminds me of the psalm (I think its a psalm), You are near. If I climb to the heavens, or sail beyond the sea, still I’ll find You there. Not sure of wording. Blessings! Pat


    • Thank you, Pat! I’m so glad that it reminded you of that Psalm (139, I had to look it up) because it is my favorite. No doubt, the psalm has deeply influenced me and came through in this poem, though I didn’t directly intend it. God works in mysterious ways!
      With love and prayers for you,
