Ask

 

 

We all
can have wisdom
if we would
but ask

humbling ourselves
to realize
it’s something that
we lack.

A laid down life turns to God again and again and again.

“Wisdom . . . cries out from the highest places of the city, ‘whoever is simple, let him turn in here!’ As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him, ‘Forsake foolishness and live, and go in the way of understanding.’ Fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:1,3,4,6 NKJV

Inquiring of God

“It happened after this that David inquired of the Lord, saying, ‘Shall I go up to any of the cities of Judah?’  And the Lord said to him, ‘Go up.’ David said, ‘Where shall I go up?’  And He said, ‘To Hebron’.”  2 Samuel 2:1

I tend to not ask enough questions or the right ones.

Lord, we thank You that You listen and respond to us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Specifics

Lord, may I ask You
if I should even go

and wait to hear the details
that I will need to know

for You are a God
who loves it when we pray

and will give us specifics
if we’ll listen to what You say.

No Shame In Asking

“And with many such parables He spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it.
But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples.” Mark 4:23-24

I wonder if the disciples felt a little embarrassed for not understanding? Or if they pretended like they understood when they didn’t? And don’t I do that too, sometimes?

Jesus, thank you for not shaming us when we don’t understand, but patiently explaining as we ask. I’ll trust that You know when I’m ready to hear what You have to say. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Hand Fed

When I don’t understand
and am feeling a little confused
You calm my fears
and hold me close
until I get used

to the fact that I can’t always know
all there is to know
but You will share
what I can handle
as I seek and grow.
