The emptiness of God

When you feel lonely,
longing to be seen,
to be heard, to be touched,
it’s loneliness for God.

The emptiness that cries out in you is holy,
it is the loneliness of God,
God’s longing
to be heard, to be seen, to be known,
Gods’ emptiness for you.

This is the Holy Trinity:
the bowl, the fruit in the bowl,
and the emptiness that makes room for the fruit.

Sit with that longing.
Embrace that loneliness.
In that holy ache
is hidden
your deepest joy.
