Riddles and Revelations

What, O Lord, do You desire?
Where am I to go? What am I to do?
What is Your will of me?

Before, I walked in a canyon
Straight, optionless
It was easy to find footing.
Now, I've stepped into the sun
Possibilities have exploded in front of me.
Where do I go now?
Which of endless options is the one You desire?

Why can't I hear You?

O Lord, I am waiting.
desperate for answers.
I don't understand
I need understanding
You are the light of the world.
Shed Your light on me.
Drown me in it.
Show me!

I will follow You
I fear the cost but I know You are worth it.
You will be there.
I will seek Your face.
I will knock all day long.
until You answer.
I am waiting, Lord...drowning in sunlight

Reveal the woman You have chosen me to be

Waiting hard.

Waiting for that special someone is even harder. When you've been raised to appreciate the value of marriage, it can be really hard to be content single. We all want to be loved and a lot of times, we let God know that we want to be loved NOW thank you very much.

But here is the thing we must never forget! We already are loved. As a Christian, you have access to the eternal, unending, ever enduring love of God. That is a love that died for you, that suffered for you, that is with you always. He realizes how much we desire to find a godly spouse and He knows the perfect timing for us to meet them. And now, then, and into eternity, His love will never change.

I think that makes all the waiting a bit easier.
