Because Of How Little We Know...

Books filled with knowledge tell us only so much
Life’s day-to-day college hinged to time’s cooled touch
Where retrospect’s cast can put on quite a show
And re-impact us with how little we know

…where we, well-acquainted with years full of ‘learn’
Depend on hindsight for the wisdom we earn
Trip-slip, fumble-stumble yields experience
Teaching us to live-love with more reverence/patience

…and not take for granted that we will behold
The seeds that we planted turn from green to gold
And always remember, by God’s grace we go
Then trust Him because of how little we know

© Janet Martin

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
  in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

A re-run because its message is needful every day!
