I remember the wilderness,
I remember like it was yesterday.
I remember crying out day and night,
I remember holding back sobs,
I remember sorrow clutching my throat,
I remember my Faith being tossed to and fro.
I remember the panic attacks,
The rocking back and forth,
The fear spirals that never ended,
The what-ifs that my mind kept conjuring up.
I remember them all,
Like it was yesterday.
I remember asking You to show up and show off, Father.
And I am glad I did.
Because, from where I stand today,
I look back, only to see your fingerprint all over my life,
The people I have met,
The places I have been,
The parties I have missed,
And the heartbreaks along with it.
You have kept you word, My Lord,
You have shown up and shown off,
In a way that only you can do.
Thank You. 🙂
And for every other time,
You would ask me to wait,
May my heart remember that you are the God –
Who never fails to show up,
At just the right time.
Not a second early and not an iota late.
For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!
Isaiah 64:4 NLT
