Why do I remember you only when I am hurt..
Only when I sit in the soil with my knees wet.
Why do I remember you only when I cry...
Only when the tears seep through the lips into my mouth..
I sometimes wonder why I remember You only in the times of agony and pain.
Maybe I am just a selfish person who needs You when I am sad.
God smiled and said silently, "Yes, you are selfish. With the fragrance of the blood from your knees, you smell the Me within you. With the tears, you taste the Me within you.
Troubles and challenges are my way to telling you that I am.
and I am within you."
