“So cheer up! Take courage, all you who love him. Wait for him to break through for you, all who trust in him!” (Psa 31:24)
The agony of waiting, watching the hours Drains my power and leaves me bitter Filled with battered pride and endless angst. But just as it takes a season to cultivate a flower, I must keep a steadfast heart and wait.
My deepest failure is relying on my own two hands To control, conquer, defend, and prevent defeat. For when I am solely responsible for the success of all life’s plans, My heart lies anxious constantly, consciously looking To deter life’s inevitable outcomes with each and every beat.
It is in waiting, humbly praying, admitting That you and you alone know the matter of my fate, That my anxious and impatient heart can rest Trusting you know what’s best and patiently, pridelessly wait. (Justin Farley)
“I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.” (Psa 40:1) ❤️
