When I was younger, I'd often ask You for this or for that... to do this or to do that. When I couldn't have it (or simply couldn't have it yet
) I'd ask You to let me know
. I'm older now, though not much. And I've learned a few things, though I have much to learn. I've grown up under Your leadership and guidance, Your merciful hand of friendship and grace, Your watchful eye and Your unfailing love for 25 years... and only now have I realized that in asking to know
, I was denying You the only thing I have that is truly mine -- the only thing I can give You that isn't already Yours....
