Where have I been and where am I going
is known but to one being.
I only pray that I do what He wishes,
learn what He wants me to learn,
and accomplish those things He desires of me.

If I could hear His voice speak of these things,
would I try as hard to accomplish them
as I do without physically hearing Him?
Or, am I hearing His voice in my heart
and just not following the way I should?

Will I ignore him the way my children ignore me?
They already believe they know more than me.
Do I ... feel this way about my Heavenly Father?
Surely in my great, mortal wisdom
I know that I will never ... ever ... know as much as Him.

Will I still follow His ways and teachings as best I can?
Maybe, if I donít try Ö I will not fail.
But, with my limited life and my mortal abilities,
if I donít at least try, I also, cannot hope to succeed.
Which would He prefer that I do?

Author's Notes:

Just as I seem to get a new handle on my life,
I start doubting myself.
Happens every time I think I have life figured out.
