Sometimes, O God, we feel like we’re lost; we feel like we have lost our direction and gotten off the path.
Help us to remember that when Adam and Eve were hiding in the trees of the Garden and God called out to Adam, “Where are you?” it wasn’t because God didn’t know where they were but rather because he wanted them to recognize and acknowledge where they were.
Thank you that you are always there, loving us enough to seek us out until we find ourselves.
Help us to remember that when the Prodigal Son came to himself, realized where he was, and went home, his father welcomed him with open arms.
Thank you that you are always there, loving us enough to embrace us when we come to ourselves and come home.
