Asking a question
is like having a life lesson.
Questions help us grow
because we do not just know.
There is so much life to learn,
such as, when to be stern
or when to be lenient—
just so that you mean it.
Do the best to teach
so our children may reach
into the truth
helping them know they are God’s jewel.
You’ll be there when they have a broken heart.
All because of a question that was asked at the start,
“Mom, his name is Tim;
may I go out with him?”
If only I knew then
what would eventually happen.
She was so devastated and hurt
when she found out he was a flirt.
With everyone else he would flatter,
and she tried to not let it matter.
Now when I look back
I know what I should have asked.
“Are you a Christian?”
and “What is your intention?”
We can’t go back
and that is a fact.
Her heart had still broke
because they were unequally yoked.
God would have given her a mate,
if only she waited, but it was too late.
Her new question
was, “What do I do now?
He broke our vow.
I tried to show him Jesus’ bright light,
but he preferred the dark night.”
“I love you and I pray
that God will comfort you today.
Read His Word
until you have heard
the exact thing you need
and then take heed.
Then ask God what His will is to be done
in this heartbreaking situation?”
“Mom, thank you again
for reminding me how to begin
all over again in God’s power
because He is my strong tower.
I should have held onto my threefold cord.
If only I asked the Lord
I wouldn’t have been in such need.”
Luke 2:46(NCV)—After three days they found Jesus sitting in the Temple with the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.
