What's New

Author requests article critique



No matter how long it takes, no matter the many nights I must pray, I will wait
No matter how bleak it looks and even when I am the only one left, I will wait
Even if there seems no hope, and there is no one who is “a potential”, I will wait
Even when I think you have forgotten and I am thinking of doing it on my own, I will wait

The world may entice me and show me how it would be, to be just like them but, I will wait
Even when my feelings get in the way and I look to every side and see no shoulder, I will wait
Even when I need to be loved and I am desperate for a soothing hug, I will wait
And even if my flesh rises up and tells me I am missing out, I will wait

Your word I will hold onto because there is only truth in it, so I will wait
Your promises will come true and what you have done for them you will do for me, so I will wait
I tried it in the world and all I got was baggage and shame, so I will wait
I never felt fulfilled because something was amiss, the factor being your approval Lord, so I will wait

Because I don’t want to displease you and get used till I am torn and tattered, I will wait
Because I desire purity and that affinity so real and everlasting, I will wait
No matter how many people make fun of me or look at me with a queer eye thinking I am crazy, I will wait
No matter if I am the last soldier standing and everyone has gone home, I will wait

Joy and peace is essential, the love that you said should be shared and molded is what I want to build on, so I will wait
I want you as my foundation so the homes and lives that are built are done so in your hands, so I will wait
The knowledge of being united with my prince, the one you made me for is so surreal, so I must wait!!
Because I know that you are preparing me as well as him for our foretold and written unity, so I will wait

No matter what forces I will have to withstand, no matter how hard the battles will be, I will wait
All I ask for is patience and your grace, to allow me to hold on so that, I will wait
Even as I am praying and saving myself explicitly for him, I believe that he is also praying and saving himself explicitly for me, so I will wait
A husband should love his wife as Christ loves the church, appreciate her and know her worth just as a wife must too
As she must serve and be obedient to her husband, and because I want that and believing we are at the potter’s house, I will wait

Even if I have no true love to recall or fall back on and even if I have been hurt in the past and I am a bit hesitant with my trust, I will wait
Even if they say you won’t answer my prayer and show/reveal to me my one and only, I will wait
And even if I don’t know how you are going to reveal him to me or how I am going to meet him, through faith I will wait
I am trusting you Lord, that you will give me my hearts desire, someone who fears you and is after your own heart, so I will wait

So although time may mock me, and the single crowd may get smaller, I will wait
Even though I want to be with him now I know you know the best time, so I will wait
Even though I can’t see where he is going to come from and when you will open my eyes, I will wait
And no matter how many clones may come claiming to be the one, I will wait
Even though the “great guys” may seem to vanish I believe you have kept my “great guy” safe/away just for me, so my dear and faithful Lord thank you and I will wait
