Questions Unasked



Questions Unasked

Whispers of that other realm

So near, so far

Questions gone unanswered

Answers of dubious substance





Terminated questions

Questions to be answered

But not to fulminate

Neither will He tolerate

Sincere questions unasked.


Some Reflection

When words have increased value with less meaning. When false answers are more important than honest questions. When the query is silenced or lead astray. When this happens truth is masked, buried, declared at enmity with the hidden lie.

Truth stands alone. It will not go away.

Truth has many debtors.

Those debts will surely be called to account.

But how often is it recognized when the immediate answer is less important than the question?

 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

Eventually. All answers don’t come cascading down like a gushing mountain river in the springtime. The Savior likes hearing from us. Even when we keep revisiting the same questions before Him.

It has been my humble experience on occasion, that He waited until I discovered the real question I had was being masked — by me. Those are precious moments of double enlightenment. He enlightened me to my truer problem, as well as imparted the answer in a way that made it crystal clear. That’s listed under “experiences that make me dance and sing.”

Our questions are important. Our queries are worthy. When answered, the response should be examined, taken to heart, and acted upon. Until that time, let us be careful not to make up our own answers to fill the gap.

  1. Well my friend, I’m thinking on these things. I am in that place where I almost have deep questions. They at the intersection of pondering and searching (with my whole heart). The good news is my quizzical stage is not borne of doubt but of trust. You realize you are alluding to depths not alluded to.

    1. “Alluding to depths not alluded to.” Interesting concept as put in that way.
      Any question we come up with that keeps us thinking about the things of God is a good thing. And we need remember it takes a move of the Spirit of God to direct our vision past the shallow to the profound.
      Thank you, my friend, it’s a good point.
