Lord, I am all tangled up in the loose ends of my life. Where do I  start?

“Pray”

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.   ‭‭I Peter‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

I am suspended-

Like a clock pendulum.

Just waiting.

Wait-ing.

Wait-ing.

Wait-ing…

…While the Must Know Nows nip at my heels. 

“The Waiting Place…waiting for the mail to come, or the rain to go, or the phone to ring…waiting for a yes or no…for the fish to bite… for wind to fly a kite…or a better break…just waiting.”  -Dr Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go!

What do I do Lord?

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!   ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭27:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

I will wait on You Lord.

But I grow weary from holding on.

I’m

    afraid  

               I

                   will

                          slip.

But on you will go though the weather be foul. On you will go though your enemies prowl. On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl. Onward up many a frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak.”  -Dr Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go!

“For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.”   ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The silence is so loud.

SO – loud.

SO – loud.

SO – loud.

Speak to me, Lord! Not my will; not my version of Your will either. I want your will, God.

“You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted. but mostly they’re darked.” -Dr Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go!  

I will trust in You, Lord.

Give me eyes to see, ears to hear, a heart to obey, Jesus.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.   ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.   Psalm 119:105 NKJV

“I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry.”  ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭40:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus,

You are Jehovah Shalom. God of peace.

I will hide myself in You.

You are my refuge.

“But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”   ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
