Seeking You: a prayer in pursuit of God

“The Lord will guide you always;
    he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
    and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like a spring whose waters never fail.” (Isaiah 58:11)

seeking You
like a suffocating man seeks oxygen
pursuing You
like a gold-digger on their last heart-flung dig
watching for You
like a red-tailed hawk perched still and attentive for prey
listening for You
like a child trapped in a cave listens for a long-awaited rescue
hungry for You
like a famine-stricken family nomadically searches for food
thirsty for You
like hard, drought-parched fields ache for rain
waiting for You
like the unemployed waits for word of a yearned-for job offer
open to You
like a cold, silent lock yields to the key that turns the tumblers
“our hearts are restless
until they rest in You”
