My head is full
Of thoughts and questions, of arguments and indecisions.
My heart is full
Of love and anger, longing and confusion.
My schedule is full
Of appointments and to-do lists, errands and meetings.
My life is full,
As it should be.
But sometimes I fear it is not full of the right things,
The best things,
The holy things.
I fear it is not full enough of You.
Be in my head, O God.
And be in my heart.
And be in my schedule.
Be in my life.
Be my life.
