Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.

Psalms 25:4 ESV

Teach me . . .

I wake with a prayer winding its way through my mind.

Two simple words, acknowledging the truth that I don’t have all the answers. Humbling.

Empowering too, because I can let go of any illusions that I do. The older I get the more I know that I don’t know. I think that’s okay—good even.

Enough for today, that’s all I need. Moment by moment, hour by hour. Making plans, setting goals, that’s all okay but this morning I’m just asking for my daily portion.

Give me wisdom in this thing . . .

Stop. Ask. Listen. Every time You come through I’m in awe.

I remind myself that being still is the better thing. I can’t hear the wisdom in the wind so I take shelter and listen with intention and there it is. That whisper. That wisdom.

Thank you . . .


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. Amen! Beautifully written wise words!

    1. Thank you, Susan.

  2. I often read from the Psalms in my morning quiet time. This month I’m adding readings from Proverbs, which as you know, has 31 chapters. Thank you, Linda.

    1. I’m following a daily reading plan that’s in the back of my bible and pondering what to do for 2018. I’m leaning toward staying with this plan but adding reading through the four gospels again and again along with it.
