Another poem

I heard this one for the first time today, and liked it immediately… and not just because I’ve been waiting in faith for a while now for my dream to come to pass.


Not Yet

Sometimes I ask the question,
“My Lord, is this your will?”
It’s then I hear You answer me,
“My anxious Child… be still.”

Sometimes I feel frustrated,
’cause I think I know what’s best.
It’s then I hear you say to me,
“My busy Child… just rest!”

Sometimes I feel so lonely and
I think I’d like a mate.
Your voice comes loud and clear and says,
“My precious Child… please wait!”

“I know the plans I have for you,
The wondrous things you’ll see;
If you can just be patient, Child,
and put your trust in Me.

I’ve plans to draw you closer.
I’ve plans to help your grow.
There’s much I do you cannot see
and much you do not know.

But know this, Child… I LOVE YOU.
You are precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb,
I planned your destiny.

I’ve something very special
I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you
are gifts you cannot earn.

They come without a price tag,
but are not without a cost;
at Calvary, I gave My Son,
so you would not be lost.

Rest, Child, and don’t grow weary
of doing what is good.
I promise I’ll come back for you
just like I said I would.

Your name is written on My palm,
I never could forget;
Therefore, don’t be discouraged
when my answer is… “Not Yet!”
