Lord, Teach Me

Today I am re-posting a poem I wrote a couple of years ago. I must admit it is one of my favorites. I hope it is beneficial to you as well.¬†I’d encourage¬†you to read it twice, the first time just read the poem, then consider each line with the verses next to it. I love the contrasts of Scripture and I think this helps illustrate them very vividly. Enjoy!
