Baptized

It is a struggle, to think of meeting 
  the one who made us
All our insecurities, doubts, fears
  come and meet us
Asking for brutal honesty
  could we have loved more 
Opened our hearts wider, deeper
  into the mystery of God
Who we are when we listen 
  more closely, more eagerly
To hear what the angels
  have to say,like Job
We might think we understand
  and know yet we lack 
The hearing to fully take
  it all in
To explore more than the surface
  to dive deeply
Where quiet takes us into the
  very heart of reflection
Our own caught in the 
  stories of the ages
