You All Along | A Prayer

You behind.
You before.
You all around
and on every side
and in every crevice.

We’re swimming in a sea of You and yet find the joy of child-like play on Your shores. Deep enough to never plumb the depths, safe enough to come in our youth and innocence and feeble ways.

We find You mysterious and endless and, for this moment, we will sit and marvel at how You are –

how You are just and forgiving
how You are with us and eternal
how You are near and entirely too holy for us.

and as we look back at the narrative of our journeys, we see that You have always been.

You behind.
You before.
You all around
and on every side
and in every crevice.

It was You all along, wasn’t it.

In Your unexplained ways with us and Your bizarre pursuit of us.

And we are grateful.

  1. This is so beautiful. I’m going to write this out and post it on my wall as a reminder of God’s continuous presence and goodness towards me. Thank you for these words.
