a thot from a sunday morning

Listening to the song ‘Novocaine for the Soul’ by Eels made me wonder: Why don’t we sing honest songs like this in church?

God already knows what our condition is and what we are thinking and what is going on in our hearts and minds– so why don’t we just acknowledge it, and then trust God. And so what if the words sound negative or questioning, God hears our hearts and understands them, even if we do not.

The act of telling God about what is going on, what we are thinking, what we are feeling, etc is a calling out from our hearts that we want Him to walk with us in the midst of living life, to work in our lives, and even change us if need be.

Besides, we can’t share with God anything about how we feel or think that He is not already aware of already.
