In the Waiting


The gift nobody longs for, still it comes

And somehow leaves us stronger

When it's gone away


I try and pray for Your will to be done

But I confess it's never fast enough for me

It seems the hardest part is waiting on You

When what I really want Is just to see Your hand move


I want a peace beyond my understanding

I want to feel it fall like rain

In the middle of my hurting

I want to feel Your arms as they surround me

And let me know that it's okay

To be here in this place

Resting in the peace that only comes

In the waiting


Time to let it go and just believe

Trusting in what no one else but You can see


Freedom from the fears that close me in

When I can't get beyond where I have been

But then again

The silence doesn't mean that I'm alone

As long as I can hear That I am still Your own

(Repeat chorus)

In the waiting...

(Lyrics by Greg Long)

I can relate. I have been growing weary of the wait, myself. It is encouraging seeing Ian and Alec home, being reminded that good things are worth waiting for. Keep your eyes on him!
