My Journey to God


Sometimes when life is hard
and dreams are broken,
I think of you
and know that life
is still worth living.

Sometimes when expectations go unmet
and what is hoped for dies,
I think of you
and know that goodness still prevails.

In you, oh Lord, I find the gracious gift
and bounty of a God whose mystery
fills the Earth
and breaks into our world
with love that truly lasts.

Seeing you, knowing you,
I believe.
