Grateful for the unknown

Well that hiatus lasted much longer than I had anticipated. This poem came from my listening of a Christian radio station and hearing all the songs about the exact same topic. While its something we should always be thankful for I believe there are many other things we should be grateful for and this is one of them.

Grateful for the Unknown

Gracious for the same again
Of God’s love and how he’s risen
We forget what else was given

Thank you for the stars unfound
And the fossils underground
Thank you for the great unknown
For this life we have on loan
Thank you for the words unsaid
For the countless books unread
Thank you for the unseen lands
The ones we don’t yet understand

While his love is as important as ever
He also granted us great endeavors
Let us not forget, amen
