Not a Word spoken to You Dear Father. Who says anything is wrong with us?
We are a Nation of Nay-Sayers, afraid “OUR” views do not occupy the moral majority’s worldview is reason to rebel. “OUR” children’s children have learned well from us. We are not alone in unwholesome talk passed on to others. We utter obscenities and rail against all that is Sacred. Who says what is holy anymore?
We keep “OUR” God-thoughts to “OUR” self, after all it is a personal matter, or is it? What is more caught than taught that disturbs “OUR” kids with how we really feel behind these false faces. “BE” angry and sin not”, “don’t let the sun go down on your wrath.” What is that supposed to mean? Doesn’t sound very holy!
Can we name anything Special that is uplifting to You? Is there any praise note-worthy of honor in Your Kingdom come to earth? Is anything worth saying, “Thank You”? Or, are we still talking about “doing it ‘OUR’ way? Whatever feels good “do it”! Can we say we did it “OUR” way or to “take a hike” to any heavenly language of love tha is beyond “OUR” understanding?
Gifts of Christmas lavished to please what others think will impress rather than speak of “The Gift” of Christmas. Denial becomes unholy practice to avoid rather then admit “OUR” guilt of hidden secrets. Who will ever know?
We are the ones owing huge debt spent on “OUR”selves to please the majority, not those who remain silent in secret sin. We believe, but help “OUR” unbelief that is spoken in the face of chaos. Crisis moments capture us unawares in terror that takes over of all we want to “BE”live again as son and daughters of all that is right, just and holy.
Deliver us from the evil one who entraps us to do his thing. We refuse to “BE” silent anymore!
