Wisdom and a Prayer

When I wrote my post on Saturday, and was thinking about where I’ve come in the last ten years, I decided to look back in my journal to see what I was thinking and writing back then. In 2002, I wrote this short poem and prayer in my prayer journal.


The wisdom of the Lord
Is beyond comprehension
For those who reject the Truth

But the wisdom of the Lord
Is comfort and understanding
For those who love His Truth

Lord, I seek Your wisdom for I find it is much superior to my own. I thank you for your Holy Spirit, who helps me to understand Your Word, to be obedient to Your call, to persevere in the midst of trials and tribulations. Though I do not fully know what Your plan is, I know it is superior to any plan I could come up with, and I see each part of my life, each trial and each blessing, as part of Your plan. Help me to always trust in Your plan, forsaking my own.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. I’m so thankful that you kept journals and wrote so many poems, and share that with us to help us now wherever we are at. (did that make sense?) Sometimes I don’t think much is happening at all, but will trust that He is getting me where He wants me and accomplishing all He has planned.
    God bless you and your heart’s desire to be fully His!

    • Deb, You made perfect sense to me! I’m actually coming close to running out of useful stuff from my journals. There’s other stuff that I would never post, but I think I only have a couple more poems left that I haven’t posted, and the one about the fungus on my rose bushes will NEVER see the light of blog! 😉 Peace, Linda

    • April, There’s a line in the song “Somewhere in the Middle” by Casting Crowns that asks “Would we trade our dream for His?” I know in my heart that His dream for me, His plan for me, is so much better. Don’t know why I also want to hang onto my own plan sometimes. It think it’s time for a trade! Peace, Linda

  2. Thank you, Linda

    I’m praying your prayer too 🙂

    You made *me* look back over the last ten plus years just now … Thanks 🙂 I’m thankful for where I am today. The hills and valleys presented their own unique challenges but He was there all the time. I didn’t always see His plan but like you, I learned to trust Him.

    Here’s Babbie Mason – Trust His Heart ( This was my anthem during those times when the fog got too thick…)

    “God is too wise to be mistaken God is too good to be unkind
    So when you don’t understand , when you don’t see His plan
    When you can’t trace His hand Trust His heart”



    • Ann, Thank you for adding that beautiful video! It is so wonderful to know that He is always there through the hills and the valleys, and while we pace on the plateaus. Peace, Linda
