LEARNING TO WAIT – Poetry

November 2, 2016

Learning to wait
Learning to see
Watching for You Lord
To know how things should be

Former years spent running ahead
Without waiting to know what You’ve said
Hitting the wall time and again
Learning the hard way there’s no way to win

Success on our own is empty at best
Following Your path, alone gives you rest
Waiting, waiting actively so
By sitting quietly until Your voice I know

When I follow myself
It never works out
Without having Your vantage point
Always take the wrong route

Learning to wait
Learning to see
Watching for You Lord
To know how things should be
