Protecting

God of the details
Who knows each hair
On my head

Who answers
Specific and urgent requests

Who meets secret needs

That’s
Not always true
Is it

Lots of times
Urgent prayers
Go unanswered

Lots of times
No needs are met
Be they secret or glaring

Lots of times
Specific or vague requests
Are not acknowledged

And that reality
Is OK

What’s not Ok
Is the insistence
On ignoring
The reality
Of a sometimes
Silent
God

On protecting God’s reputation
As if that is needed

What’s not Ok
Is when we look reality
In the face
And deny it

When we do that
We are not protecting God

We are protecting
What we want
To be true
About God

Writing God’s story
 
Instead of learning
From the story
God is telling
