We Are Confident

Confident, God, we are confident
of who you are
of what you expect of us
of our standing before you

But then
you move, and our confidence is shattered
you speak, and our boasting is silenced
and we are confronted by your apparent dislike for our confidence

We realize too late
that our confidence is misplaced
for we are not confident in you
but only in our conception of you

So God
may our hearts be broken
may our spirits be contrite
and may we always be confident
in you
for you
because of you

We are confident of one thing…
we are yours.
