Where is God in the dark of this weekend?

When you can hardly even ask
where the heart of God is
in all this evil and dark …

AnnFB264.55

God takes our broken hearts
and gives us His own still-beating heart,
His pierced-right-through-and-made-whole heart,
so we can still keep breathing.

His heart this weekend is in us
in our weeping and moaning and wounded doubts,
in the places where we don’t believe —
when our believing runs out, God’s loving runs on
His inexplicable love
somehow beating unstoppable.
