when we complain

when we complain
we put us in the center
we deny the provision
the blessings of our God

when we complain
we are like the people
grumbling in the desert
denying the gifts of God

when we complain
we give in to worry
our anxieties and exhaustion
sap our faith in God

when we complain
God still provides for us
a way through the desert
back to God’s arms
