2018 Sonnet 35

Does God know the future? What does it hold?
Tell me, and give me your chapter and verse.
If the future’s not yet then it’s nothing to know.
God says a choice is a blessing or curse,

But it’s ours to make. It’s undecided
Which road we take, so choose you this day
Whether Yahweh or Baal. God confided
In scripture the truth: We choose our own way.

Time travel, the stuff of science fiction
But God says time moves in one direction.
You don’t back up; you have no depiction
Of all that will be, just God’s protection.

We know God is love and will always care.
Whatever the future, God will be there.
