Ask For A Sign

“Ask for a sign,” says the prophet of God,
“ask for a sign and the Lord shall provide.”
And here’s where I stumble.

I am not a man of great faith,
doubt and despair follow me like shadows in October,
so (one would think) I should welcome a sign,
a guarantee of the promise,
a demonstration of God’s good faith.

“Ask for a sign,” says the prophet of God,
“ask for anything, for the impossible,
for tombs to be opened or the sun to turn back,
ask for a sign and God will show.”

But I cannot. Even this is beyond my reach.
Lord, lead me to the rock that is higher.

(Isaiah 7: 10 – 12 / Psalm 61: 2)
