5167230780_5a5a78caca_zFrom Your hand, O Lord,
we receive everything.

You stretch Your powerful hand,
and turn worldly wisdom into holy folly.

You open Your gentle hand,
and offer the gift of inward peace.

If sometimes it seems that Your arm is shortened,
then You increase our faith and trust,
so that we may reach out to You.

And if sometimes it seems that You withdraw Your hand from us,
then we know it is only to conceal the eternal blessing which You have promised –
that we may yearn even more fervently for You.

Soren Kierkegaard, 1813-55.
