New Living Translation (NLT)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
6 Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
7 Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.
Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
8 Then you will have healing for your body
and strength for your bones.
In The Twinkling of an Inkling
When I was thirteen
I was sure I knew it all
You could ask me anything
From the very biggest to the extra small
Then I went to college
And my knowledge began to shrink
While I wasn’t certain why that was
It surely made me think
And when I had to go to work
My boss had just one thing to say
Keep your opinions to yourself
Or hit the old highway
Well time went on and I found a bride
And we produced a family
There’s nothing like a wife and kids
To make your brain power cease to be
Then I hit my fifties
And my body began to alter
My hair grew thin and waistline fat
While my mind was fast to falter
Now here I sit retired and old
My life passed in a twinkling
I think I have what’s called Alzheimer’s
But most days I haven’t got an inkling
But do not cry or shed a tear
Cause there’s one thing I know is true
“The more I’ve learned I didn’t know,
The more I’ve come to know of You.”

When I was young and foolish I believed I had all the answers to all the questions. Now, I have all the questions and only one answer. You are that answer. Thank You for teaching me how little I knew until now.
