Never Alone


Oh the WAIT is long

So ask HIM~

"How long, Lord?

Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?  How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?"*.

Oh the WAIT is long and tensions rise

So ask HIM~

 "Look on me and answer, LORD MY GOD. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,  and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall".*

But then something happens in the midst of the WAIT

as the ONE whom you are questioning and asking

is the ONE whom you can't live without

as HE draws closer to you

in your questions and your asking

and you are a wee bit surprised

that HE didn't walk away

as you expressed your unedited feelings.

You are stopped in your tracks

and tears fill your eyes

as you feel so close

that you don't ever want to let go

because HE IS who you need more than anything else right now

&

HE is willing to be with you as you

continue to WAIT~

"But I trust in YOUR unfailing love; my heart rejoices in YOUR salvation.  I will sing the LORD'S praise, for HE has been good to me" (Psalm 13)

And the WAIT isn't so bad after all

because you know that you are not alone in the

WAIT

because

"When I reach out for HIM, HE is there

When I am lonely as I can be

And I know that GOD shines HIS light on me" ((Van Morrison)

because it isn't ever "IF HE"

it is always

"WHENEVER GOD SHINES HIS LIGHT" (listen to the song below)
