Sometimes We Wait

I was blessed by this song I heard on the radio just a while ago while going over my physics assignment. I feel a little guilty for staying up late when I have a 7:30 class tomorrow, but after hearing the song, I realize, perhaps I wasn’t meant to go into bed early.

It’s a very beautiful song on waiting.

There are lots of things in this life we are all longing for- sometimes we wait for something we are utterly sure that it is for us and sometimes we wait on things that we aren’t even sure are coming. Whatever it is we are waiting for, it is easy to forget God’s faithfulness and His sovereignty in our lives. We may become bitter over His seemingly delayed response when in fact we don’t realize that it is not God who operates on our timetable, but rather it us who operates on His timetable.

This song is a very wonderful reminder that sometimes it is in waiting that we find God’s answer to our prayers.

Did Moses know when the branches spoke he would be the chosen one?
Or did his people know that a cloud of smoke would someday lead them home?
Sometimes God will speak through a bush of flames or pillars in the sky,
But at times His silence fills our days leaving us to wonder “Why?”.

Sometimes we wait, simply to find
Sometimes His answers come with time,
Not right away clearly to see,
Sometimes we never get those parted seas
That lead us from the shore.
But there is a place
Where we rest in His grace
When sometimes we wait on the Lord.

If I had my way, there would come a day with a never-ending dawn.
No more mournful sighs in the dark of night as I wonder where He’s gone.
I would never see how His mercy reigns beneath a cloudless sky.
There would be no need for healing grace to comfort when we cry.

Sometimes we wait, simply to find
Sometimes His answers come with time,
Not right away clearly to see,
Sometimes we never get those parted seas
That lead us from the shore.
But there is a place
Where we rest in His grace
When sometimes we wait on the Lord.
