Prayer

Paradox

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

He rides across the heavens to help you (Deuteronomy 33:26; NLT).

We give thanks because you are near (Psalm 75:1; NLT).

O LORD, why do you stand so far away? (Psalm 10:1; NLT).


Lord,
You are light, –
Yet we seek you
In darkness.

You speak –
Yet we seek you
In silence.

You move –
Yet we seek you
In stillness.

You are near –
Yet you can seem
So far away.
