…when I don’t see the answer I am yearning for
…when my efforts don’t bring about the expected result
…when I waste precious time
…when life stands still and growth is stunned.
So I pray,
Open my eyes, dear Lord, to see
…Your fingerprint in the silences I don’t like,
…Your ways built in me as I barely tread water,
…Your hand holding on to my weeks, and days, and hours,
…Your breath that makes all things grow.
Open my heart, dear Lord, to understand
…Your perfect love in retrospect,
…Your kindness saving me from me,
…Your mercy that leads me home,
…Your heart that beats to love me more.
