Reward

 

We are not waiting
for nothing

for only more pain
and emptiness

for we have a God
who loves us

who always keeps
His promises.

**********

You are with me and reward me as I seek You.

“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:11 NIV

“Blessed are all those who wait for Him. You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:18,19 NKJV

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Come Down

 

I need You, Jesus
I need You, Lord
my heart is broken
my world is torn

You say look no further
I have come
your mountains will tremble
and be undone.

You establish Your presence in my life.

“Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! That the mountains might shake at Your presence. Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him.” Isaiah 64:1,4 NKJV

Gracious

 

Blessed are you
as you wait on Me

walking in My
mercy

for I listen to
your every cry

and answer you
graciously.

Jesus establishes my waiting.

“Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:18,19 NKJV

Wait Silently

IMG_0387 waiting on
car’s bumper
not like the others

Rare to find something alive on the front of the car.

“My soul wait silently for God alone. He is my defense; I shall not be moved. Power belongs to God. Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy.”  Psalm 62:5,6,11,12  NKJV

Power
belongs to Me
and mercy
is also Mine

that you might wait
and not be moved
from
My time line.

Awake

“I lie awake,
And am like a sparrow alone on the
housetop.”  Psalm 102:7

God knows about each sparrow.

Lord, please help me not to be discouraged when I must wait to hear from You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Yearning

agodman.com

agodman.com

Laying  awake at night
wanting to hear
Your voice
to feel Your presence

and if I don’t it doesn’t mean
that Your not near
just that I need to trust
and in faith persevere.

Real Strength

“O You his Strength, I will wait for You.”  Psalms 59:9

I tend to think I’m stronger than I really am.

Lord, please teach me how to rely on Your strength and not my own.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Wait and See

Our strength isn’t in the number
of pounds we can lift

nor in the amount of miles
we jog to stay fit

but in the power
of His Holy Spirit

and our joy as we trust
in all He’s doing yet.

 

(Happy New Year to you and yours! )

Hope

“And now, LORD, what do I wait for?
My hope is in You.”  Psalms 39:
7

And our Hope does not disappoint us.

Lord, thank You for being with us now and being what we wait for.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

My Hope Is You

I will not wait on                                      images
something other

something that
is untrue

for all my hope
is in Jesus

in Who He is
and what He’ll do.

Waiting Exercises

“Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your hearts;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!”  Psalm 27:14

Waiting can make us stronger.

Lord, give us the courage to wait on You today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Brave Enough To Wait

source – wandervogeldiary.wordpress.com

Be of good courage
as you wait on Me

for I will strengthen your heart
perpetually

and you will be a people
of My mercy and grace

unable to be shaken
at any time, in any place.

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 . . .

Already

source – school.discoveryeducation.com

As I wait
for answers

it’s okay
if it takes time

for then
I realize

You’re most important
and already mine.

 

Watching

“Watch therefore for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”  Matthew  25:13

When someone has told us they will give us a ride, we watch and wait for them to come.

Lord Jesus, thank You for promising to come again and pick us up for the ride of our lives.  May our excitement as we watch for You draw many others to start looking too.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Waiting For Our Ride

Watching, waiting
greatly anticipating
knowing what we see now
is not all there is.

For there will be a day
when all this passes away
and we’ll live together forever
as His.
