Spiritual Life

I do not know

what the future will bring.

I cannot worry

of what comes next.

No need to fret

about these insignificant worries.

No need to substitute

knowledge for wisdom.                                         

T’is my big mistake for

there is no substitute.

My benefit of true wisdom,

only comes from me

and my relations with God.

My spiritual life grows

only in the times

when I am silent, praying,

listening for the wisdom to come

from the words of God. Listening

and learning about my spiritual life.
