I Know Not

I know not from whence I came
only that I am from GOD.
He has all the answers
and I am very simply awed.
I know not from whence the wind blows
or how the ocean stays contained
Only that I came from GOD
and HE has not explained.

I know not how all things work
but simply look to HIM
For all the answers to my needs,
I seek not on a whim.
Somehow HE dwells within me
and expands to always fill
The longing of my heart and mind
and I know only that HE will.

I know not when I shall see HIM
and look upon HIS Face,
Only that one day I will
and that, simply by HIS Grace.
I know I will be truly amazed
and wish I had done more
For the precious One Who saved me
to live with HIM for evermore.

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection
and the life. He who believes in me will
live even though he dies; and whoever
lives and believes in me will never die.
Do you believe this?"
John 11: 25,26
