Ask

Want to know where God is?
Dare to ask Him where.
Ask when you are suffering.
Ask when you despair.
Ask when you are longing.
Ask, and find Him there.

Want to know who God is?
Dare to ask Him who.
Ask when you are seeking.
Ask when you’re confused.
Ask when you are doubting.
Ask, and He’ll show you.

Answers may blow softly.
Answers may shine strong.
Answers may walk sideways.
Answers may wait long.
But God delights to answer.
Even questions we don’t know.

Want to know if God cares?
Dare to ask Him why.
Ask when you are lonely.
Ask when tears you cry.
Ask when you feel empty.
Ask and see Him die.

Answers may blow softly.
Answers may shine strong.
Answers may walk sideways.
Answers may wait long.
But God delights to answer.
Even questions we don’t know.
