DEAR LORD...


Dear Lord...I've Seen The Light

Dear Lord, I need a word with you
If you have time to spare.

I know that you're quite busy,

My time is also rare.

In fact, that's why I wanted
To talk to you tonight.

I need to explain to you

That I have seen the light.

For so long I have taken
For granted that you knew

My wants and my needs

And my desires too.

Not only that, but peace of mind
And happiness I seek

I'd like to be much stronger

Instead of being weak.

I thought that you would help me
If only I believed.

I waited for you, Lord,

In my time of need.

I'd rush to work each morning.
I'd rush through lunch as well.

I knew I had alot to do;

I had no time to tell

You what was on my mind
Or what I needed now;

In my haste to live my life

I've forgotten to somehow

Make the time to spend with you
And ponder who you are.

I guess I've put you in the closet

Then forgot and closed the door.

I know this sounds so strange
But I just now realize

I've done it without thinking

But now open are my eyes.

How can I expect you to help me
When I don't even stop to say

I love you and make the time

Each day to you to pray?

Lord, thank you for not giving up
On me, I've been so wrong

And now I'm asking you to help me

From now on to be strong;

In remembering what I need to do
And as I open the closet door

I pray that you'll forgive me

And that you will restore

In me the values needed
To be what I should be

And that's to come and talk with you

Much more regularly.

I thank you, Lord, for loving me
Enough to stick around;

You said what I needed to hear

Yet never made a sound.

But that is just your gentle way
That I admire so

And how I want to be some day

But have a long way to go.

I know that I will make it
So long as you are near

And I have nothing in this world

That I will ever fear.

For I have you to lean on
My rock, my Lord, my all;

You're there to help me up again

Whenever I may fall.

I thank you, Lord, for taking
This time to spend with me;

It's more than I deserve,

I've seen the light, you see.

I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart,

and watch to see what He will say to me.

Habakkuk 2:1


Faith never gives up. It knows that despite appearances, all is well. It can wait without signs or significant indications that God is at work, because it is sure of Him

We must learn to view each delay as if it were “perfectly fine.” Postponements are reasons to pray rather than grow anxious, impatient, and annoyed. They’re opportunities for God to build those imperishable but hard-to-acquire qualities of humility, patience, serenity, and strength. God never says, “Wait awhile,” unless He is planning to do something in our situation—or in us. He waits to be gracious
