Unspoken thoughts

Luke 24:13-18

That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. And he said to them, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad. Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?

It’s the unspoken thoughts that make you feel the sadness.
Thinking that others know more than you do.
Wondering why they were approached and not you.
Asking yourself, “Where did I go wrong?”
How could you have misread the situation?
Then everything changes;
the door opens,
the phone rings,
the text pings:
the sadness turns to joy.
And you chastise yourself for not believing the best.

forgive me when 
I mistrust my friends and overlook your presence by my side.
