The old adage: "Youth is wasted on the Young" is, all about, learning to rejoice, in the present~~which requires wisdom~~which requires experience~~ which requires time~~~SO, that old adage, is surely, true . Art

When we were children, a child was often the last thing we wanted,
to be
Always acting older, wanting the right to reason for ourselves and from authority or control over us, to be speedily
set free.

The billions of stories, of that endeavor to make one's
own way
is played out throughout the world, in inexplicable, unique scenarios, 
every minute of every,
new day.

But somewhere on our growing old, journey, each of us is led
to choose
Between God and self as to who sits on our life's throne; with the devil in the middle, trying to to convince us God and eternity is nothing but
a ruse

If we see through the lies and are, through Jesus saved and,
made new
We learn to discern, to choose wisdom and thru His Word we see; that becoming that innocent, obedient child again, is exactly what our Father in heaven wants us,
to do.

"Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and
become as little children; you will by no means enter
the kingdom of heaven. Thefore whoever humbles himself
as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of
heaven"~~~~ Matthew 18:3-4

Our adult pride does keep us from many things we should be enjoying.

Nicely done, Rock! I picture a little child toddling over to his Daddy in complete trust, knowing in his child's-heart that in Daddy's arms is safety and love.
And I think that's what Jesus' love is, a refuge for the one who will rest in His arms and trust Him in all things.

the picture is as precious as can be--and your words ring true

We are born innocent and defiled by worldly knowing, which is of arrogance before God, to become one with God again, as Jesus says we have to become like little children innocent again! You brought this out in nice poetic form, Best to you Rock. Jasmin Horst
