His Light


It is a way forward,
this light, however dim,
and even if I can see my way
only one step at a time,
I trust in the guide
who sees fit to shine
His light only where He leads.

And though I pray
for so much more
than what I can see
by His light right now;
I must trust
what He yet hides from me,
as much as what He reveals.

Because He promises.
He promises, that though I doubt
I can yet believe;
can trust in a future
still dimly perceived,
through the misty veil
of hopes and dreams.

I can depend on the fruition
of His promises,
and plans, though they may differ
from all I’ve yet imagined.
They are designed to fit our frames
and not to chaff and hurt
as something ill-planned.

Yes, it’s a way forward,
this light, however dim.
And what matters more,
is not what’s held in store,
but the truth, that He accompanies
His children on their journeying,

and we’re to forsake our crowns, for His.

  1. These words perfectly describe the feelings of waiting. And, of how awesome to know that God sees me...hears me...and knows just what I need, when I need it. Thank you, Ana Lisa

    1. Thank you Jeanne for visiting. I sometimes wonder if part of the reason for God making us wait, is that our relationship with him is more important than anything we wait for. He teaches us that all our longings find their fulfillment in him. Every blessing to you.
