Numbers 11:1-3

Complaining in the Desert

Now when the people complained in the hearing of the Lord about their misfortunes, the Lord heard it and his anger was kindled. Then the fire of the Lord burned against them, and consumed some outlying parts of the camp. But the people cried out to Moses; and Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire abated. So that place was called Taberah, because the fire of the Lord burned against them.

God you are used to your people
complaining and grumbling
making idols
when it seems you are out of sight
We've done it all through the ages.
We remove ourselves from you
and then blame you
for not being around.
And there are all sorts of things
to take our attention,
to fill the spaces
All sorts of shiny distractions 
that appease us for a while.
But none can take the place of your steadfast love
and your constant care.
So draw us back to you
the source of love and life everlasting.
