Learning to Wait and to Trust

“Father” I gasp “Are you sure this was your will?”
As doubt spills from my lips, all around me is still,
The tears start to flow, as the hurt consumes my heart
What is he doing? I wasn’t ready for this part.

I question: Chastisement? A trial? A Test?
I pray in my heart, This can’t be for the best.
I search all around me, Everything starts moving so fast,
Life is just a blur, oh the shadows it cast.

I wait for the Lord to calm all my fears,
The devil starts to question, “Does he really hear?”

Then the wind blows, just not like before
A soft gentle breeze, but to me, so much more
I hear the Holy Spirit as he takes my hand
“Don’t fret dear child, I’ll help you to stand.”

So through my hurt, my faith grows so strong,
God knew what he was doing, he is never wrong.
In this life worry and pain are a must
But oh what joy, learning to wait and to trust.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

--Isaiah 40:31
