I know that You can do all things,
and that no thought or purpose of Yours
can be restrained or thwarted.
“I’m convinced: You can do anything & everything.
Nothing & no one can upset Your plans.
You asked, ‘Who is this muddying the water,
Who are they who ignorantly confuse the issue,
Who are those second-guessing My purposes?’
I admit it. I was the one.
I babbled on about things far beyond me,
I made small talk about wonders way over my head.
You told me,
Listen & let Me do the talking.
Let Me ask the questions.
You give the answers.’
I admit I once lived by rumors of You;
now I have it all firsthand—
I see You with my own eyes
I hear You with my own ears!
I’m sorry— forgive me.
I’ll never do that again,
I’ll never again live on crusts of hearsay,
I’ll never again trust in crumbs of rumor.”
