“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.”
Psalm 37:4-7a NIV
Jesus, I am weary, my faith is tired. This waiting weighs heavy on me. Yet there is no need for me to struggle. You have already won this fight.
I am letting go.
I am surrendering.
I take your hand and we dance. We spin and my joy returns. In your arms, I am home.
In your arms, our daughter is home. You delight in her. You rejoice over her with singing. You are mighty to save! (Zephaniah 3:17)
In your arms, she is held and I am held. I wait for you, Lord. I will choose joy each day. I will seek your beauty. I will find delight in you.
Each day that we continue to wait, I will continue to put my trust in you. The day will come. Our heart’s desire will be fulfilled. On that day when our daughter comes home, your righteous reward will shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.
Oh, happy day! Round and round we will spin, a happy dance!!
To God be the Glory forever, Amen.
