He wondered about God.
He wondered if he could or should
think about the Big Picture more often.
Not to deny or assent to Him, necessarily,
but just to ponder such things,
to touch home base, to feel
a hint of that bigger Presence again.
Torn between his secular life
and a feeling that he was missing out
on something important,
he asked himself:
“Can I have contact with God without ‘religion’?
(no slick TV preachers, please)
Am I already being called, but just can’t hear it?
Does God need my praise and thanks?
Do I need to give it?
Can I get the help I need here?
How might I ask for this help?
What is in the way of my asking?
What happens if I simply ignore these musings?
What happens if I don’t?”
At the end, he just gave thanks for the questions,
as he kept them alive inside.
