I wrote Let Me Know during a retreat back in 2018. I wasn’t in the best of places healthwise, felt exhausted, anxious, disconnected from my faith and generally blaahh… I remember telling my retreat guide that as far as I was concerned, everything was up for grabs. I needed to go back to basics.
Let Me Know was my prayer. It was written during the same week as To See Your Glory. Looking back at them now, I think it’s clear that my prayer was answered, don’t you?
Let me know:
that I am loved
that you are there
that today isn’t the end of the road
but a lay-by on the edge of the route
climbing up to a land of giddy possibility.
Help me see:
the colours of joy
the face of love
that place where I’ve never visited before
yet which has always spelt home and resting place.
Help me hear:
the sounds of peace
your song of love
murmuring clear above the cacophony
of my jumbled thoughts
and muddled memories.
And help me feel:
that sense of you
your touch of love
that you are here
always- closer to me than my own breathing.
Let me know…
