Lent 16

Because so often life seems to be without order:
I love you, O Holy One who creates and tells stories.

Because I struggle to understand and tackle the world's injustices:
I love you, O Holy One who promises deliverance.

Because I strive and try and work...and then wonder where I'm going:
I love you, O Holy One who guided Hagar and Miriam and Naomi.

Because you do not leave me alone when I need comfort and when I need prodding:
I love you, O Holy One who is restless and passionate.

Because you are not me; because you are beyond this world and still choose to be part of it:
I love you, O Holy One who lights the fire when I need it most.
