I am trying to draw near to you. Which path leads thither? Would you have me surmount obstacles, or is it the broad and welcoming way I see before me? How would I make the way for my own child to reach me? Would it not be filled with ease?
Lord, I imagine a world of challenges and tests between us. It is my own pride’s doing; I want to receive your love as an achievement. Yet you love me even in failure.
Let me take the broad way, Lord, the way to you.
