If you are like me … and I think you are … then you don’t like to wait for things. You want God to help you now. So, like me, you probably try to help Him out. He’s asking us to wait. Trust. Let Him help you, not the other way around.
How about you?
God Are You There
I’m way down here! You’re way up there!
Are You sure You can hear My faint, faltering prayer?
For I’m so unsure Of just how to pray—
To tell you the truth, God, I don’t know what to say. . .
I just know I am lonely And vaguely disturbed,
Bewildered and restless, Confused and perturbed. . .
And they tell me that prayer Helps to quiet the mind
And to unburden the heart For in stillness we find
A newborn assurance That Someone does care
And Someone does answer Each small sincere prayer!
