I need to know, I want to know, I shout…
I need to know, I cry from a broken weary heart…
I need to know, I sigh, as circumstance so entangle me that I’m afraid to move in case I fall…
I need to know, I whisper in the dark, as I wonder where the strength for one more day will come from…

I need to know,
why, and when,
and where…

I just want answers, is that too much to ask?…

And into all these “need to knows” comes this reply,
No child,
you, in all your not knowing,
rather need to trust,
the One who knows it all…

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledges Him and He will direct you paths” Proverbs 3: 5.6

Will you help me Lord?

Will you help me to trust you- really trust you,
so that I learn to be content in this now,
while I wait for the then…

Thank you,
