I Will Wait For You There

I will wait for You there
Down on my knees where I met You
Give You all of my cares
Find grace to hold onto now
I'm calling for You

I will wait for You there
Far from the world and its violence
It's left me broken and bare
I need to hear You in the silence now
I'm calling for You

And with outstretched arms
I will sing out melodies
And my beating heart
Will pour out a symphony
Hallelujahs in the morning
Hallelujahs in the night
I will wait for You as long as I live

I will wait for You there
Down on my knees where I met You
'Cause life is a war fought with tears
But You are the strength I hold onto now
I'm calling for You

Life is hard. It's hard for everybody. It doesn't matter who you are, where you came from, how you were brought up, what you're involved in, or what your plans are. Life happens.

What if the next time you faced a trial, you didn't plead and whine to God about how it's so unfair and ask Him when it will be lifted from your plate?
What if you trusted Him and believed Him for healing?

What if you looked over your life and your previous trials and recalled to mind that the Lord is faithful?
What if you got on your knees and waited for Him there? Life IS a war fought with tears...but God Himself is fighting for you. Exodus 14:14-The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.
Exodus 33:14-The Lord replied, "My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

He is so big...big enough to create like 350 billion galaxies or something to that effect...don't you believe He's big enough to hold your heart tonight?

I'm challenging myself to keep going when rough spots hit. To not stop everything and wonder when God is going to redeem the situation...

instead, I want to stand in His sweet, fragrant, intoxicating, overwhelming, beautiful, powerful presence and trust that He knows what He's doing and move on to further serve Him...because He's told me and showed me time and time again that He does know what He's doing and that He is so worth trusting.

Lord Jesus, save us from ourselves.
