I am lost, lost, lost
without You, You, You
showing me, me, me
what to do, do, do
so I wait, wait, wait,
as I sit in
at Your feet
won’t You sing
with your sweet sweet
I wait patiently
as I worship
at Your feet
Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. Isaiah 30:18
I remember being worried sick over little things that were completely out of my control. And every single time, whatever it was, it worked itself out. Or He worked it out, unbeknownst to me. When my girls were babies, I taught piano and voice lessons out of my home. I was blessed with wonderful students who would take turns being my “helper” and they would watch my girls while I taught. Often, one would get sick or something would happen and I would not have a babysitter. I remember the sheer panic I felt, as if my entire world was going to end. But each and every time, He met my need.
I think about all the unnecessary stress I caused myself over worrying- not to mention the gray hairs I added to my head. It has taken me a long time- and I have a long way to go- but I am beginning to see these things as opportunities- for God to show me how faithful He is. Often when we say “wait”- we mean to “stop”. When God asks us to wait, He calls us to action– to worship with adoration and expectation! He wants us to commit our situations to Him, and to know that He will answer- in His timing, in His perfect way.
I wrote this song recently as I waited for Him. And I’m still waiting…and the worship is sweet as I look to my Heavenly Father for guidance and direction- in all things!
The waiting doesn’t ends- until He calls us home.
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
