God often says 'wait'

God often says ‘wait’

God often says ‘wait’
when we ask him to guide;
To think not of ‘fate’,
but to wait, by his side.

He know what he wills
for each precious child,
But, holds back, as he stills
our thoughts that run wild.

God is always there
but trust must come first;
He surrounds with his care
as we fear for the worst.

We can’t force his hand,
there is only his peace;
Giving up on our stand,
we find his release.

He’ll offer his will
but will not dictate;
In his time, he’ll fulfil,
but, for now – we should wait.
