“For your heart that loves me,
For your feet that pursue me,
For your voice that calls out to me,
I thank you, O God.
Thank you for raising the questions
that draw me into a dialogue with you
about my life and how I have been living it.
Thank you for every tug of conscience
that has led to every timid step
that has brought me out in the open
in my relationship with you.
My hope, O God, my only hope,
is that you are more persistent in your seeking
than I am in my hiding.”
– Ken Gire, Reflections on the Word
