Unlearning

by Mark Weinrich

There is so much reeducation 
in life, unlearning what we
assumed was true. Like God 
speaks only occasionally.
Why would the Lord encourage us
to ask for answers, to seek
guidance, and to call out for help?
Why would He direct us to ask
for wisdom in our time of need,
wisdom that Scripture says
God gives generously. If He gives
so generously, why would
the Lord be stingy in His response?

In the school of God’s Spirit
my mind is to be renewed, my life
transformed through surrender. 
Then I can understand
the goodness of His will, 
for my spiritual ears and eyes
have been opened.
