So many voices,
so many signs,
so many choices and opinions
all promising wisdom
and the life it brings.
It’s tempting to listen,
tempting to try these well-marketed principles
especially now, when so much is at stake.
But, then I remember,
wisdom is not an idea,
not a method or technique,
not a formula to buy or sell.
It’s much simpler, and much more difficult than that,
for it requires the unpredictable,
the vulnerable work
of relationship with you, God.
So, here I am, to lose myself in you again,
and to let your wisdom find me.
