Whispers of that other realm
So near, so far
Questions gone unanswered
Answers of dubious substance
Questions to be answered
But not to fulminate
Neither will He tolerate
Sincere questions unasked.
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. 8 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.
