Lord, I’m getting sick of waiting
but I know that just means I’ll have to do it longer
God, I want an answer now
but that just means You’ll hold it longer
Father, give me a revelation!
Alas, You say “It is not yet your time to know”
Jesus, I’m waiting and crying and begging you here
And like with a toddler You’re ignoring me until I settle down
Christ, I’m getting so impatient
And that’s when You grant me the grace to wait more
Spirit, show me my next turn!
But You tell me to sit at the rest stop and focus on You
Yahweh, give me a next step!
But You smile and say that I’ve not finished this one yet
Jehovah, why do You refuse me an answer?
You tell me I need to practice patience
Savior, I don’t have any patience…
You say “Be still and know that I am God”
Creator, I haven’t got time for this
You laugh and say “This is MY universe to run as I please”
Abba, please grant me patience.
A relieved sigh as You say “You’re finally starting to understand”
Immanuel, help me to let everything go
With this in Your hands You can carry-out Your plans
I AM, I will wait for Your timing
You nod and tell me I’ve finally taken the hint
Counselor, I give up control, take it all
You hug me and say it will all be okay now
Daddy, I love You and live to serve You
With heartfelt joy You give my revelation; Your plan is perfect for me
