How to Wait

I have no need

on bended knee

to plead my cause to God above

for all He does

approved or not, by me,

my Father does with love.

So as I kneel

if I could learn

that time was made abundantly

and recognize

in life, in time,

my Father knows what’s best for me.

So when I plead

an earthly cause

I have no need to want control.

A willing heart,

and trusting faith,

will bring me closer to my goal.

The Lesser Trials

(c)2012 Waltzingon Photography

What is learned respect for earned humility?

The natural feeling of grateful reflection of another trial overcome?

I, too, have been humbled by the enormous

but I have failed to respect the provoked devotion

one must have to bow beneath lesser trials.

It is easy to comfort oneself after the big mountains

saying, “Look, all I had to overcome!”

But maybe in reverence we should bow our hearts,

even in an exhausted plea for comfort,

for those trials of a lesser degree,

those problems of every day,

and then experience true humility.
