When you are waiting on Gods timing….

“I Can Wait”

Oh, the night is dark and the road is hard
Lord, my heavy heart is about to break!
I’m face to face with a need for faith
Give me eyes to see past today.
[Chorus:]
Cause there is no easy out
Gravity hurts when I get knocked out
Don’t need to know why,
You give me the faith
To know you’re on time,
Not a second late!
So I can wait, I can wait,
I can wait,
You’re right on time, not a second late!
I can wait!
Lead me by your truth that will never move
Cause I need a light that will never fade (that will never fade!)
Lord your plans are for me
Even when I can’t see the whole story
Give me eyes to see past today!
[Chorus:]
Cause it’s no easy out
Gravity hurts when I get knocked out
Don’t need to know why,
You give me the faith
To know you’re on time,
Not a second late!
So I can wait, I can wait,
I can wait,
You’re right on time, not a second late!
So I can wait!
Through the fire, through the rain
Through the joy, through the pain
In it all, I can wait
Cause thank God your love remains.
[Chorus:]
You see, is no easy way out
Gravity hurts when I get knocked out
Don’t need to know why,
You give me the faith
To know you’re on time,
Not a second late!
So I can wait, I can wait!
I can wait,
You’re right on time, not a second late!
I can wait!

A Prayer of Surrender

Father God

I realize that I haven’t done everything right, i realize that I have wasted time trying to do it my own way.

All you have ever wanted from me is my trust, and yet I struggle.

I think about the people that have let me down, and I have projected those fears on you.

As a result I have a hard time believing that You forever have the best of intentions for me. 

That I can trust You fully and completely to lead and guide me.

But when I think of how loving, kind, and merciful that you have been to me, I cannot help but want to be one who walks closely with you, fully trusting you to lead me where You want me to be.

So change my heart God,  make me into the fiercely loyal child that you want me to be.

Remind me that this life is not my own.

Help me to daily follow your lead, as I daily choose to lay it all down at the foot of the Cross.

I make a choice to trust you fully for my future,

And the future of those I love.

I lay all of my fears, worries, struggles, and doubts down.

And I say with all my heart

You lead, Ill follow.

In Jesus Name I pray.

Amen!
