When I displace my vision, forgetting who I am, You find me and remind me: I am more than what seems…

And when I drain my heart of all its tenderness–and it is hard, and cold, unbend-able and stiff, You pour Your soothing oil, You speak the words of truth; You take the time that’s needed to bring it back to life…

When I forget my way and find myself “out there,” You come and take my hand to lead me back to You…

And when I squander all the treasures of my soul, You gently pick them up and put them back in place…

When I displace my values and start to fall away, You catch me in Your arms, and wash away the skewed…

And when I lose my footing and I begin to drown, You pull me out so strongly, and hold me for a while.  You warm my freezing soul, You thaw my hardened heart…

When I feel like a puzzle, a million scattered pieces, You put me back together, one corner at a time…

And when I have exhausted all the strength within me, You uncover Your own to infuse it in me…

When I relinquish who You have made me to be, when I decide that I just want to run and hide, You stand up tall and strong, refusing all my tantrums.  You just won’t let me go, for I belong to You…

You are my friend, my God, the lover of my soul

And I know deep within that You will always love me

And I know deep within that You will always find me.
