Many years ago when I was in my late teens, my mom sent this poem to me on a card. I have always enjoyed poems and often would write one or two here and there. I have kept the poem card in my Bible for nearly 33years. Still, I really did not understand this poem. Well, I could understand the words and general meaning ...but not really the depths of the poem. And I still am not sure I fully 'trust' so that I do not fret and worry.
But when cleaning out my Bible cover today, I found the poem. And the words seem finally to take on the meaning the author meant for them to have. As the Lord takes us through trials, our eyes open up to see --what was already there. I still would like to see ahead--to know that all will be right, to know that the Lord did change a heart -- but He has all things in His hands under His control, and in His timing. -- I must Trust the All Powerful for all of life.
I oft' times think I'd like to see
beyond my limits view.
I'd like to know the wondrous things
my gracious Lord will do.
But if I understood and saw
As God sees from above,
I'd lose the privilege and the joy
Trusting in His Love. -- Ruth Narramore

Just an ordinary woman, striving to be that "aged" woman of Titus 2..teaching the younger women good things: so that they may be sober, love their husbands, love their children, and to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands that the Word of God be not blasphemed.
