I doubt, therefore I am

A song for St. Thomas Sunday: Doubting Thomas by Nickel Creek ....



Doubting Thomas

What will be left when I've drawn my last breath
Besides the folks I've met and the folks who've known me
Will I discover a soul-saving love
Or just the dirt above and below me

I'm a doubting Thomas
I took a promise
But I do not feel safe
Oh me of little faith

Sometimes I pray for a slap in the face
Then I beg to be spared cause I'm a coward
If there's a master of death
I bet he's holding his breath
As I show the blind and tell the deaf about his power

I'm a doubting Thomas
I can't keep my promises
Cause I don't know what's safe
Oh me of little faith

Can I be used to help others find truth
When I'm scared I'll find proof that it's a lie
Can I be led down a trail dropping bread crumbs
That prove I'm not ready to die

Please give me time to decipher the signs
Please forgive me for time that I've wasted

I'm a doubting Thomas
I'll take your promise
Though I know nothin's safe
Oh me of little faith

I believe that we have all the time in the world then some to learn about God.

Long story short, I also believe that we could go crazy imagining and thinking that we know of "IT" in some form of reality and might even end UP understanding "IT" if we work hard enough at "IT" but when The Truth finally hits U>S (usual sinners) we'll probably end UP wondering why we even wanted to know in the first place? :)

Does that make any sense?


Peace
