God Loves a Questioner

God loves a questioner;

the man who asks before he does.

As much as he who nodding, plodding, does it just because.

God loves a heart that questions and wants to know just why.

He loves the one who cries in grief instead of standing by.

If not, the world would never get the beauty of the things

that come from wanting more of what we know the answer brings.

To question fosters progress. To ask increases trust.

If found, a profound faith in what we know inspires us.

God loves the man who asks His name and whether He is real.

The question begs an answer or a reason not to kneel.

In that moment of discovery, as the focus is the task

is when God becomes the answer to any question we could ask.

If I feel shame in asking, the disgrace is all my own

for God may love the questioner even more than one who won’t.

Watch this great YouTube video on the personality of  the Questioner, according to Gretchen Rubin, Author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before (the book I’m currently reading!) Are you a Questioner?  I have been my whole life! lol

  1. Thanks so much for following me. I so agree with this poem. I truly believe in asking a LOT of questions and I think God even encourages that. God bless.
