Hindsight

Post  WARRIOR on Mon 03 Jan 2011, 5:42 pm

Of a sad truth you can never
Go back in time to what was
You can revisit your past
But often will find it missing
Only memories can linger in your heart ~
You can never go back to the past
Or the familiar or secure
For change uproots, time eradicates
We can cherish what we have known
And be thankful for what we learned ~
With age we mature and grow beyond
Our infancy to that of adulthood
One can only mentor those who
Are youthful in heart
Uncultivated in life or its ways
To show wisdom to avoid misery ~
How we all have said one time -
“If I only knew then what I do now”
But hindsight is just that
And it only can show us this -
We are never in control ~
That it is God who sustains us
He even allows us memory so
That we may learn from it
And a cause to be grateful in the process ~
We have pilgrims’ shoes that walk
The earth and clouds to infinity
Hoping one day to rest with the Master
Let us trade our sorrow and happenstance
For Joy and confidence in our hope
~ Jesus Christ, today and forever.
