The Wait

Jesus

You want all of me,

Don’t you.

The part of me that worries,

And the part that smiles because the sun is shining and it is spring

The parts of me that hopes,

And the thoughts that cause me to spiral into fear.

Hear I am,

Impatient and restless and expectant and joyful

Frightened yet smiling

I am stepping out in faith

Learning, ever learning,

How to wait-

Awash in possibility.

 

Isaiah 40:31   but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Isaiah 30:18   Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.
