"This King, full of mercy and goodness.. Embraces me with love, makes me eat at His table, serves me with His own hands. He converses and delights Himself with me incessantly.. And treats me in all respects as His favorite."
-Brother Lawrence

I don't want to become a stranger.
I don't want to forget how Your voice sounds
or the way You hold me till the storm passes.
I don't want to run away from home anymore.
I don't want to desire anything less than all of You.
I don't want to live in loneliness and fear.
I will run into Your arms again.
Yes, I will run.
Like a prodigal to my Father's warm embrace, I will run.
And You carry me, You give Your child sweet rest,
You restore my strength.
