Best of us are bumblers…despite our own good opinion, we’re often
Uninformed, ignorant, overly self-confident. Prideful self-reliance
Makes a mess of our simple and grand ideas, opportunities. We
Botch tasks, relationships—convinced by ego of our unique brilliance.
Life’s stuff and bother, and beauty—all that we reach for, clench dearest—
Everything would be easier, if we first sought God’s wise guidance*.

*Trust in the Lord Proverbs 3:4-6
…4 So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.…New American Standard Bible
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.
