The Beginning of Wisdom


Chad Lilly

Glory be unto God

creator and sustainer

of the worlds, whose

light is made to shine

over waters 

of flowing life below.

Your Spirit 

indwelling those 

chosen to receive,

those accepting 

what so freely is given

unto all who ask . . .

blessed is he who

calls Thy Name 

earnestly seeking

to know thy ways,

whose broken heart

beats heavily within

his weary chest

kneeling before his maker



loathing the separation 

hes created between

himself and God . . .

willing now to renounce

The Lie 

and listen with ears

that hear The Voice

more clearly than his own; 

this is the beginning of wisdom.
