The waiting hall

Walking down the hospital hallway, I would be stopped in my tracks, By an anxious patient waiting for a long time, And quite often, this is the question that would be uttered – “Is the doctor still there?!” With a smile so assuring, I would reply, “Of Course! The doctor will not leave until they have seen all the patients, Don’t worry.” Wouldn’t it be wonderful, If, In the waiting hall of life, We had someone to assure us that God is still working. And that though I haven’t seen him come out of His office and call my name – Yet, He hasn’t forgotten that I am waiting for Him. Waiting for His promises to come true, Waiting to see His “good and perfect” plans work out. And waiting all by myself, Watching others walk in and out of the doctor’s office with the worry wiped off their faces. Oft, I forget, That He is waiting beside me, Right here, Amidst my uncertainties and questions galore, He is waiting and whispering peace to my soul. Lord, Help us wait, For as long as it takes. And to remember, that You are never late. Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalms 42:11 NIV

Sit still, He said.

Sit still, He says, In the middle of the storm… Sit still, He says, With the ocean raging on… Sit still, He says – Close by my side, For there you will find shelter, And strength like never before.
