I was waiting on God, then
realized God was waiting
on me. I was determined to trust
Him. I chose to believe to see
His goodness in the dark as I do
in the Light.
Like Jacob of old I was clinging with soul-effort…
I will not let you go until you bless me.”
Then He called my name!
The One who called forth
the stars in the universe
You, born again child of mine,
I called you from the valley
gave you increasing faith.
I led you to the mountain-top
where I tested you
more than you could know.
I opened the eyes of your heart
and let you see My Light
shining in the darkness
of your soul.
I waited for the bud of patience
to bloom in your heart,
Praise to move upon your lips,
and deep-down soul rest,
where struggles cease
and joy returns.
I sent Rhema Words,
opened your mind to understand,
Times of waiting are in My Father’s Hands.
Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage;
yes wait for the Lord (Psalm 27:14).
The testing of your faith works patience (James 1:3).
Glenda – this is so beautiful and describes your season right now . . . still praying. I’m waiting right along with you 🙂
And what on earth would I do if not for dear friends who pray and wait with me!
Thanks for being my forever friend.
Honey, this is so Biblically true and needed for today. Thanks!
You know just how much I need this right now. Thanks for hanging in there with me through the thick and thin of waiting. Love you!
Beautiful, Glenda! I love your poetry!
Thank you Vonda!
Amen Glenda. This is so beautiful! Sounds like “patience is having its perfect work” in you. So amazing and comforting when we can rest in the knowledge that our times are in HIS hands. Thanks for the timely reminder. Love and blessings to you! ❤
That’s my prayer. I need the grace of the Lord to do for me what I can not do for myself…plant the seeds of patience in my spirit. Praise God patience is a fruit of the spirit, not by my own self effort. Thanks always for your words of encouragement. God bless you.
