Look, img_7470

I’m doing the best I can.

I pray to you, dedicating thought, word, and deed.

I call you by names that bring consolation and hope and names that are in a language that is not my own.

I dare to speak on your behalf- to interpret your works, your character, your will.

I throw down before you- people for healing, people for correction, people for consolation. Sometimes that is all needed in one person.

I listen. I wait. I follow.

I doubt, but I move. Still I move. Still I go. And go. And go.

And wonder where you are.

I believe, Lord. Forgive my unbelief.
