No matter how long I have lived and how many lessons I’ve learned, it never fails that my desires betray my selfish heart,
my answered prayers run smack dab into my control and ambition;
and once again, I find the need to humble myself before God,
just do the one next thing He has put before me,
and leave my future in His careful, tender hands.
It may be tattered, but it a precious piece of my past.
