“He said, ‘Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.’ Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence.”  1 Kings 19:11-12

like a two-year-old,
we can
lay on the faith and
stomp our feet,
scream our heads off,
hold our breath
until we turn blue, and
having exhausted ourselves
with our foolishness,
are finally able to hear
your gentle whispers of
grace, hope, and love
for our lives
