Be Where You Are

When you are in a dark place
and you want to get out of it,
remember that life is not somewhere else,

but where you are. 
The story may or may not be 
that you quickly escape.
But the story surely is that God is with you
where you are. 
Before you leap toward the escape hatch,
be where you are. 
Notice. Look around, even in a dark room,
and see God there
before you leave.
