Waiting for the thermals

Waiting on Your wonderful promises

Not relying on my own understanding

Not running around trying to make things work

Not going through life alone in despair

Waiting on You

You promised, surely You will deliver

You are never late

You prepare everything so perfectly

So that everything is just right

I repent for the times that I have been impatient

The many times I have complained, not understanding that You were at work

My understanding is limited to only what I see

But You see the whole picture

I see just a tiny part of it

So I will wait on You

Just as the eagle waits on the thermals

A mystery

You liken those who wait on You to these majestic birds

Strong fearless and yet, they still wait

They don’t rely on their own strength

Neither will I

I will ride on Your strength then let everyone know, that You helped me

So I am waiting on You Almighty eternal God.

Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

But those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.


One thought

  1. It is good to wait upon God. He knows what is best for us and the best time for whatever that is. It is so easy to get impatient waiting for the Lord to work something out in our lives. Thank you for sharing this.
