They Ask Me
by Dan Blankenship
© 2008 Dan Blankenship





They ask me
Why do you believe?
I reply, why donít you?
Have you not seen enough?
Enough hate, hunger, and chaos
Enough misdirection, confusion, and uncertainty

They ask me
Why do you follow a God you canít see?
And I ask them?
How have your gods of the visible worked out for you?
Have you found peace in your governments?
Your possessions
Or your deeds

They ask me
How I know for sure?
And I tell them He is the one sure thing
Governments, armies, and civilizations rise and crumble
The Word and the Giver of the Word remain constant
Solid
Complete
Boundless

They ask me
Show us some proof
A sign
A miracle
A transformation
And I ask them why they seek proof?
Proof of something they donít believe

They ask me
Why He cares for them
And I ask them
How could He be capable of any less?
Through doubt and careless excuses
The glimpses of His glory shine through
Shine through, just enough
That theyíre always asking me
Asking me about Him



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I think that God shines in you a little more than 'just enough', but I am so glad that they keep asking. I also enjoy the shape of your verses. Interesting! Nice message, well written. Elizabeth.

Thoughtful and thought provoking. And I pray that they keep on asking until they KNOW HIM!
