Even when I don’t understand

I often fail in my purpose

out of fear,

but when fear passes,

what I regret

is the missed opportunities.

God is faithful to His promises,

I am called to stand

in faith

for what He is asking of me

and faithfully obey,

even when I don’t understand.


I read the Scriptures, 

and I wish that

the next script of my life

could give me the meaning of things

as they happen.

But scriptures were written

long after the events they describe.

It is likely that the prophets

had to take the first steps

in obedience

without the understanding

that we have of their purpose.


God is faithful to me,

I am called to be faithful to Him

even when I don’t understand.
