Disillusion Me


Disillusion me, Lord.

I have so many illusions

about how things “should be.”


I believe life should be easy.

I believe I should be happy.

I believe people should be fair.

I believe miracles should be routine.

I believe dreams should come true.


And, yes, above all these,

I believe that You should act the way

I think You should act.

That is the greatest illusion of all.


I need to be disillusioned, Lord.

I need you to strip away these

fantasies

and replace them with

Truth.


But, to be honest,

I don’t want Truth.

I don’t want to know that there is

a time to uproot

a time to tear down

a time to weep

a time to mourn

a time to give up as lost

a time to die.


I don’t want to know that

all things work together

for good.

I just want all things to

be good.


But I need to know

Truth.

I need to bathe in

Truth.

I need to live in

Truth.

Because You are

Truth

and it is

You

that I need.


So, disillusion me, Lord.

In You

the Faithful and True

I am free.
