Waiting-a poem

Have you ever felt like you were in a waiting season? I don’t know about you, but I don’t think anyone handles those well. For me, it’s definitely a struggle. I try to lean on God, but not before getting really frustrated with Him. Don’t worry, we work through it.

Even though it’s uncomfortable, the Bible is pretty clear that waiting is a good thing–a God thing. It’s difficult and that means God is using it to mold us (James 1:2-4 NASB).

Patience is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and it must be, because no other fruit makes me question my sanity more. When it comes right down to it though, I’d rather wait on God than do my own thing. I don’t have to tell you which one of us actually knows what He’s doing.

Meanwhile, I’ve dusted off the rhymes and awakened the angst to bring you this poem. Just like with any trial, you have to dig for the encouragement.


For the moon to appear,

For the first newborn cry,

For the snow to melt away,

For the candlelight to die

An unbearable test,

A neverending delay,

A wave with no crest,

A night with no day

The horizon is nearer than you,

The stars much simpler to grasp,

Is it all just a game to be played,

Is patience more like a trap?

If it all were to end,

And we say our goodbyes

Could I let you go,

Or would it just be a lie?

When it truly is finished,

And that moment arrives,

Joy may be thriving,

But hope won’t survive

Today, I choose expectation,

Tomorrow, the silent war,

Until the victor has won,

And I’m

Waiting…no more.

Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.
-Psalm 27:14
