SOMETIMES, O GOD, my thirst for you is pushed aside, ignored, or simply quenched by something other – something reasonable, something more popular – than you. But you never go away, never stop, never leave the depths of me. Like an underground spring, you are fresh and free, breaking through. Help me prepare a place for you in the caverns of my soul. Amen.
