You Have Answered

“But You, O LORD, do not be far from Me;
O My Strength,  hasten to help Me!
Deliver Me from the sword . . .

“You have answered me.”  Psalm 22:19-20,21

I will never have to wait for an answer like Jesus did.

Lord, thank You for being our answer today. And here’s a simple poem . . .


source –

As I wait
for answers

it’s okay
if it takes time

for then
I realize

You’re most important
and already mine.




  1. when he answers our prayer, he has only the best for us.

  2. Good one, Sis Deb!! He truly is our Answer for every need–even though sometimes I want to look elsewhere for something quicker, louder. I thank Him for His grace and mercy, and give Him the glory-glory!! Love you, Jesus! God bless you, Sweet Sis–have a wow-wonderful Wednesday–love, your sis Caddo Delight

  3. “…it’s okay
    if it takes time…”

    This is one of those learned lessons over the years.

  4. so – it that your final answer?
    This is good Debbie, While we wait for the answer to… we know we have the final answer already.
    see – i was paying attention!

  5. Hi Deb,

    Love your poem…. it is so true, we can wait on the Lord because we know that “You’re most important and already mine.” What more could we want? May the Lord xcontinue to bless you.

  6. I’m glad that I stopped by. Your poem gave me a huge sense of relief! Yes, I’ll keep praying for those other good things – but in the meantime – I already have what’s best…
    Blessings ~ Wendy
