Welcome to another Five Minute Friday. The day and the place where we write for Five Minutes off a prompt word given each week. This week our word is WAIT. So, let.s go!
WAIT is a word
we seldom like to hear.
Cause in this day and age
in a snap, we want it near.
Yes, as we snap our fingers
we want it here and now.
WAIT is not a word
our vocabulary will allow.
Even with our cellphones
we want it one, two, three.
“Siri, can you find that
I need it, immediately!”
But you see it’s in the waiting
God’s working His best for you.
Although we can not see it
that’s what He’s trying to do.
He’s the one Who sets the stage
and then we play the part.
He brings forth the characters
and sets each one apart.
But sometimes in our impatience
we try to hurry Him along.
Then things get out of place
and not where they belong.
But today with a Word of Wisdom
if you’re trying to push God’s hand.
Oh my friend, sit back
and praise Him where you stand.
Praise Him for His timing
and for what He’s about to do.
Knowing in your heart
His best interest, — is only YOU!
“But those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. ” Isiah 40:13
Remember everything has a time and a season. And since each one carries its own beauty, so will the changes of seasons in your life.
Thanks for stopping by … Be safe and see you next week!
