Longing for Connection

She sits at the screen just passing time,
Consciously listening for that familiar chime.
Minute by minute, scroll after scroll,
New information is gathered but she feels like a troll.

Waiting for someone to just break through,
A new notification or a message out of the blue.
She sighs and she waits for a sign that someone cares,
The silence in her mind is more than she can bear. 

She’s looking for love in all the wrong places,
Twitter, Facebook and even MySpace’s. 
A connection with someone brings validation,
But a silent day causes self deflation.

So where should she go when she feels all alone?
Messages go unread and no one answers the phone?
Turn to the One who will never let go. 
Hebrews 13:5 says He’ll be there, you know?

So turn off the computer and silence your phone,
Find yourself on your knees and before His throne,
Give Him your troubles, your worries, your fears,
Lay down your burdens, He’ll carry those tears.

Return to the One who loved you first,
Who has loved you in your best and your worst.
Find acceptance and love in His tender care,
When you long for connection, you can find it in prayer.
