I sometimes have to wait
where my faith in the Lord
I ponder and contemplate.
Now, I would rather be an eagle,
whose on the mountain top
but in the land of In-Between
God often has me come to a stop.
I believe He brings me here,
for His purpose and His will
but when I'm in, In-Between
it's hard to wait and be still.
When God has me stopover,
in the land of In-Between
I know that it is because
on Him, He wants me to lean.
Now, when I'm in the valley dark,
and everything is unclear
that is when I know that God
will draw me close and near.
But, being neither here nor there,
sometimes makes me doubt
yet I know this is the place
where I need to figure my faith out.
He makes me take a breather,
for He really wants me to learn
what I need to do to change . . .
so that in hell ~ I won't burn.
In the land of In-Between,
there's a lot for me to contemplate
soon I'll have my eagles wings
until then, I must trust and wait!
So, if you're in the land of In-Between,
I want to stress the importance of it to you
it's the place in your life that God will show
the changes in you ~ He wants to do!
King James Version
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."
