Have you ever waited for something for so long that you get tired of waiting? Then, somewhere along the way you remember that there is such a thing as different seasons and the “right” time for something to come to life? I wrote this poem from such a place and time in my life, a few years ago. It’s addressed to God. You are welcome to say it and address it to Him too.
Teach me to be in sync with your seasons.
That I may be, always submitted,
Obedient to your word.
Teach me of your glory in your grace;
Of the splendor of being committed,
Covered by your peace.
Teach me to say thank you for your “no”,
And to appreciate the value of your “wait”
So that I may treasure your “yes” even more.
Teach me of your seasons,
Open my eyes to see the reasons.
May I be content with your timing.
Be blessed friends. You are being refined in the wait.
