It would seem I was the slowest at the end of every day.
My feet would move much slower which really was the key.
And I would end up saying, come on, please Wait For Me.
When Phy Ed came while going to school this class I learned to hate.
When others ran and jumped and played I would always hesitate.
For the legs that God had given me needed work to make them free.
And I did not like to have to ask, come on, please Wait For Me.
I’m older now and living life and thank the Lord each day.
That I am able to get around in a very normal way.
And I focus now on writing stories that all fit on a page.
It’s too bad that they haven’t yet made me a living wage.
So off to work we go each day to earn our keep in life.
My wife and I each have our jobs which help relieve the strife.
So recently our jobs have changed and a new world we must see.
And God will say, “don’t run ahead, be patient and Wait For Me.”
I find it is so hard to do with the unknown on my mind.
For I like to know what’s coming next which puts me in a bind.
I want to plan and feel secure which seems like victory.
But God assures me He’s my hope so please, just Wait For Me.
So now I try to live each day and put anxious thoughts behind.
And trust the Lord to lead us through when the future seems unkind.
We wait on Him for He’s never failed to always lead us through.
It’s just hard to have the patience as He gives us life anew.
For Christ is our example as we get up with the sun.
He says, “You are My people, you don’t ever have to run.
Just trust Me now to lead, and don’t go out on your own.
For Satan wants to discourage you in the realm of the unknown.”
I pray dear Lord You help us all when impatience pokes its nose.
For You can make a thorny bush into a magnificent rose.
And when You find me unsatisfied with the way that things may be.
Help me to remember, You said “My child, Please Wait For Me.”
