Empty Inside

Lord, why do I feel empty inside?
This feeling cannot be denied
It feels like something is so wrong
I’ve had this feeling so long
I know You are with me
But why don’t I see
I continually seek comfort in food
Trying to comfort my mood
But it doesn’t work
And I feel like a jerk
Then I feel bad
Which makes me sad
Then comes guilt
Making me tilt
To shame and despair
I know You care
You have given me so much
I have felt Your gentle touch
You are so good to me
this I plainly see
What am I missing inside
Where does joy and peace reside
