THE FOURTH WORD

Faith should bear its doubts,
more with pride then shame,
The tension of belief and unbelief
marking one thirsting to know God more deeply,
honestly, God's shoulders broad enough to bear all.
How quick we are to dismiss with a word,
the rawness of pain,

Forsakenness stares down our discomfort with doubt.
Defies our discomfort and soothing words
that insult both God and us.
For only when we have nothing, can we have everything.
