Wednesday Riff: Understood

O LORD, you have searched us and known us.
You know when we sit down and when we rise up.
You know when we are full of hope and enthusiasm,
You know when we are struggling to see a way forward.
You know when our faith is alive and buoyant,
You know when we are full of doubt and dread.
O LORD, you have searched us and known us.
You discern our thoughts from far away.
You know our thoughts often clash with one another,
That we are sometimes full of certainty, sometimes full of disbelief.
At times full of trust, at times full of questions.
Sometimes caring, sometimes selfish.
And you know too that our minds wander, sometimes visiting dark corners.
O LORD, you have searched us and known us.
You know us better than we know ourselves,
You see us in the darkness and the light,
And you understand, you care,
And you long to lead us towards life.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
