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
"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)
