Lent: Ask

amywink February 28th, 2018

“Everyone who asks, receives. Whoever seeks, finds.
To everyone who knocks, the door is opened.”
Luke 11: 9-10

Sometimes I wonder,
astonished, just what
was being asked
so deeply
when I arrived?
Not out of arrogance,
but often sheer surprise
at being drawn
unquestioning
toward this moment
of recognition.

And just as often
I think on
what I was
asking, deeply,
truly, asking
to have received
this peace,
this door opened
by a prayer I didn’t
fully know
I was praying,
yet was answered
all the same.
