Learning to Know

BY: Ruth Williams

Ask and you shall receive, but perhaps not in the package you expected.

I can learn firsthand about the things most people have to do every day just to survive in this world, or I can read about it.  I can reach the point where I don’t have any idea how I’m going to pay all these bills and feed my son and my dog, or I can hear it anecdotally.

I can learn how to treat people when I’m not at my best, when my stomach is not full, when my heart is lonely.  I can learn it the hard way and really get the message, and when abundance comes around I can savor God’s grace and feel its full impact from the crown of my head to the corns on my toes.

I can know for myself that all is well, no matter how dire things may seem.  I can find meaning every day as I make my way in the world, so that when my “shot” comes, I’ll have it in me to bring somebody else up along the way.

It’s a gift.  It’s God’s grace.  It’s life.

Blessed Day

I don't know where, I don't know when,
But something's got to give.
I'm just gonna talk turkey (even though it's not Thanksgiving)
Gonna lay my cards on the table (even though we're not in Vegas)
You've really been putting me through it.

Sent me up that creek without a paddle.
But I'm not giving up on You.
I'm too stubborn for that.
All that I've been through, all the answers I still don't have.
It all comes down to this:
I don't know how, but I know Who.
Shore me up until I can stand on my own again.

- Patricia Williams
