Hiding in God’s Own Sanctuary

“Where are you?”

The sound of heartbreak
rang through the garden
as the Lord went out
in the cool of the evening
to meet his children,
who hid in the place
that he gave them,
a place made for
fellowship with God.

God still calls,
and we still hide,
in places built for
communion with him,
masking our shame and fear
by doing the good while
failing to hear his call
to something great.

Father, forgive us.

Amen
