Patiently Waiting

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the skies.

Psalm 36:5
New International Version (NIV)

          I've looked heavenward on dark silent nights pondering the unending blanket of stars above  me, wondering when, oh when, I will be face to face with you God.  In the vastness of the universe and even this world I feel small, lost, and forgotten.  But I know you are here with me always.  I feel your presence in the quiet of night.  I sense your being in the busyness of the big city bustle.  You were there when I've needed you in the past and I know you will not abandon me in whatever future I have left on this Earth.

        Your love is forever.  I know that.   Forgive my weaknesses and my foolish ways.  You know me.  I want to know you better.  I praise you for all the blessings in my life.  You are great, oh God!  I thank you for caring for me and the faithful love and mercy you show to all who will see.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.   Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:6-7

New International Version (NIV)

  1. So beautiful, Arlee. You spoke my heart's desire. Many blessings to you.

  2. Whether we feel God's presence or not, He is always there; He casts his eye over the whole of creation as if we alone were the only thing that mattered to Him.

    How good to know, then, that in a constantly changing world, HE is unchangingly constant!

    Bless you, Arlee - and if we don't meet in this life, I'm sure we will in the next! :-)

  3. Beautiful. I feel the same way at times. :-)
