Waiting for You

Waiting for You

By Sindy Nagel

From the heart of God:

 

I sat here through the morning

At our normal meeting place

I watched with anticipation

But I never saw your face

 

I had many things to tell you

To help you through your day

But you didn’t have time to listen

Your ears weren’t turned my way

 

Then morning turned to noon time

And I still no word from you

I watched as you set your hands

To accomplish your “To Do”

 

Your busy schedule didn’t allow

For the plans I’d made for you

The grandfather in the corner

Chimed one, and then, chimed two

 

Your day was now half over

Not one thought had turned my way

Would you remember Me at all

As you hurried through your day?

 

The bus pulled up out in the street

The kids rushed in the door

No quiet time now in the house

As the clock sang out, “It’s four”

 

Soon your husband will be home from work

Fast food for dinner’s the plan

As you head off to sports practice

Piling the kids in your mini van

 

I thought maybe you’d talk to me

While you waited at the field

But the phone came out, your fingers flew

It’s that social media appeal

 

Back home, it’s eight and time to help

With homework at the table

I know you’d spend some time with Me

If only you were able

 

I hoped we’d have some time alone

As the clock rang the number ten

But exhausted from your busy day

You fell right into bed

 

Your eyelids were very heavy

And you drifted off to sleep

Straight into la la dreamland

No time for counting sheep

 

Tomorrow is another day

I’ll be in our usual place

Do you think you’ll make time for me?

Will I see your beautiful face?

 

No matter where you are in life

No matter what you do

I’m always just a whisper away

I am waiting here for you

 

The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears, and I have not been rebellious; I have not drawn back. (Isaiah 50:4-5)

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:29-31)

Give the Lord some time today to instruct you, strengthen you, and empower you to soar on wings like an eagle and not grow weary. Listen like one being taught. He is waiting for you.
