Teachable

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Step back; and let me do what I do best – 
Work in your life, to see that you are blessed.
Don’t get discouraged when you cannot see
The answers to the things you’ve asked of Me.
For child, My ways and yours are not the same.
I’m orchestrating on a higher plane.
 
And though you may feel helpless, that’s okay.
In fact, it really is the only way
For Me to show my power and strength to you;
As you admit there’s nothing you can do
But lean on Me. That’s just the place to start!
For I can take a humble, searching heart
And teach you what it is to know My grace.
My classroom is your quiet, secret place.
 
“Who is the man that fears the LORD?
Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.”
Psalm 25:12 NKJV
