Eyes open

Their eyes were kept from recognizing him.
        Open my inner eye to see your presence.


Thinking him to be the gardener, she asked,
“Where have you taken him?”

         Help me see you in all people.

Jesus stood on the beach, but they did not know it was Jesus.

        Help me trust in your presence,
        even when I do not feel it.



Truly, God was in this place and I,
I did not know it.

 

        You have walked with me
        even when I did not know it.
        Grant me gratitude and trust.
        May I wonder at your presence
        and walk in faith.


[Genesis 28.16]
