Within the heavens,
Within the moments of coincidence,
Within the intricacies of theology and science,
Within the mystery and the unknown,
and within the heavy emotions and heart-felt convictions:
Lord, we seek you.
Yet, you are on earth – revealed through your creation,
You are in the ordinary and everyday unnoticed and unrecognized,
You are in the spaces beyond knowledge and yet in plain sight,
and you are seen and felt more in our actions of hope and love
than our reactions of devotion or internal chemistry:
Lord, reveal to us.
Within the busy-ness of bees,
Within the ringtones of notifications,
Within the individualism and self-reliance,
Within the selfishness of pride and the self-righteousness of pain,
and within the our day to day ignorance:
Lord, seek us.
Wonderful Jesus, as we play hide and seek together,
Increase our faith and faithfulness this day. Amen.
