Waiting on the Lord Part 1

So much waiting!  We have all been waiting for so many things in this last year and a half. But even as things begin to get back to some form of normal, I have spoken to so many people who feel like they are waiting on God’s answers to their prayers. Waiting on His timing for what they are seeking.

And this waiting is H A R D.

If you are waiting on something, I hope this will encourage you.

That sweet an – ti – ci – pa – tion  some find as their reward

Is NOT what I experience when waitin’ on the Lord

Chorus:  Waitin’ on the Lord    Waitin’ on the Lord

Is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do

Waitin’ on the Lord  Waitin’ on the Lord

Is the harderst thing I’ve ever had to do

   Could be the hardest thing He’ll ever ask of you

I have waited with a lot of folks I have waited all alone

I have waited in some far off places I have waited in my home

Well I take this waitin’ all in stride but I really can’t afford

The real frustration that I feel when waitin’ on the Lord

and I want to know it now

Ev-ery sin-gle min-ute goes so slow

I want to know the answer to my prayer

But I must wait on Him somehow

It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do

Could be the hardest thing He’ll ever ask of you

BibleprayerhandsWell the Bible tells me just “be still” so that’s what I’m gonna do

And in the quiet, I can hear His voice and I know just what to do

And in His time His plan succeeds!  Oh what a great reward!

I’m finally really learnin’ how to wait upon the Lord!
