the gift of waiting  


If God always gave us the answers

as soon as requests left our lips

then we wouldn’t receive the blessing

of waiting for presents from Him.

All good and perfect gifts come from above

But we must wait our turn

And in eager anticipation

Is lessons we need learn.

Don’t lose heart and don’t lose hope

Don’t go sneaking for hidden toys

The time for opening His treasures

Will be in His time and place

Then we will joyfully unwrap His praise!
