God can feel the pain of suffering
when our hearts leak like a sieve.
When our children in a classroom
are denied their right to live.
Then God whispers in the silence,
"Since I lost my only Son,
I can comfort grieving parents
till my Kingdom fully comes."
God invites us to be trusting
when we find that faith is hard.
When we’re fearful for our safety
and our nerves are frayed or jarred.
Still God whispers in the silence,
"Even when your faith is weak,
I will keep your feet from stumbling
when your way is dark and bleak."
