I count myself among the people in my life, friends and family, that are asking God to move in their lives and they are waiting. Everything from people needing surgery and waiting on an opening, marriages that seem to be falling apart, and just being discontent in the way that the world and our country are headed. There are more, but I think you all understand what I’m talking about.
I have prayed for things in the past that I thought for sure God was going to work in my favor. I was absolutely positive that elections could not possibly go how they did, I was for sure and for certain my daddy’s cancer would be healed, I couldn’t believe it when a beloved pastor from my youth chose the wrong path. There are things people. Believe me, there are things.
We all have stuff.
Some of us feel as if we have been praying for years, some for only days. Somehow, we all start out believing that what we want is what God wants. Sometimes it is. Sometimes we have no clue that what God wants is better and until we are neck deep in the miracle, we then look back and say, “Oh, well look at that”.
You all know me by now. Worship leader! So of course, like a friend of mine that always tells me she has a book for that, I have a song for that. Kristene DiMarco came out with a song about six years ago that ministered to me so deeply. It is called Take Courage. I’m going to give you all the lyrics. I hope it blesses you as it did me.
Hold on! He is in the waiting!
Slow down, take time, Breath in He said
He’d reveal what’s to come
The thoughts in His mind, Always higher than mine
He’ll reveal all to come
Take courage my heart,Stay steadfast my soul
He’s in the waiting, He’s in the waiting
Hold onto your hope, As your triumph unfolds
He’s never failing, He’s never failing
Sing praise my soul, Find strength in joy
Let His Words lead you on
Do not forget, His great faithfulness
He’ll finish all He’s begun
And You who hold the stars
Who call them each by name
Will surely keep Your promise to me
That I will rise in Your victory
