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 am fully alive in love. I write about the profound wonder and terrible beauty of life while living with physical disability and severe dependency. Unafraid to ask life's big questions, I was briefly an atheist and considered other religions before finding, in God's choice to intimately share our humanity, what it truly means to be fully human. A revert to the Catholic Faith, I blog weekly and have written a book called It's Good to Be Here.

  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,
