To Those Who Wait

I found this song in the past week or so and I can’t stop listening to it. It is hands down the best musically and lyrically eloquently and poetic song ever written about waiting. God whispers over me to be still, and I feel restless, and yet there’s a lot of waiting that I need to do. And not even just waiting…but not taking control and trying to make things happen. And not even that…but resting in Him. And being okay with Him being enough. And realizing that it’s not about me, and it’s not up to me. And that is reassuring. So, I’m learning again, how to wait, how to rest in Him.

And I will let the songs speak to me again. And maybe start posting more of these songs. Maybe.

“To Those Who Wait” by Bethany Dillon

I am waiting on You,
I am waiting on You.
You say You’re good to those who wait.

My heart’s discouraged,
So I come to You expectant.
You say You’re good to those who wait.

Lord, today You know what I need to do,
But You can do more in my waiting than in my doing I could do.
So I won’t run anymore.
I’m waiting on You.

Oh, wretched man that I am!
Free me from my distractions.
You say You’re good to those who wait.

Then confession and repentance
Find me in the quiet.
You say You’re good to those who wait.
Now I know You’re good to those who wait.

Lord, today You know what I need to do,
But You can do more in my waiting than in my doing I could do.
So I won’t run anymore.
I’m waiting on You.

Oh, my soul,
Wait upon the Lord.
Keep your lamp filled with oil.
Oh, my soul,
Be not deceived!
Wait for Him.
Don’t be quick to leave.

Lord, today You know what I need to do,
But You can do more in my waiting than in my doing I could do.
So I won’t run anymore.
I’m waiting on You.
