Patience

Wait;Psalm 27;14Now wait my soul,
Don’t rush ahead.
Your God will keep
All that He said
~
While all seems dark,
While silence stands,
He is not far.
You’re in His hands.
~
So wait my soul.
Don’t fret and fear.
Be still and know
Your God is near.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    Your poems are so beautiful and timely. They could be songs! I was feeling a little distance this morning, so I cued up some praise songs, sang along, prayed and drew near to Him. I know that He is always near and always faithful. I’m the one who fears and frets, sins and regrets. So thankful for His patience, grace and steadfastness. And thankful for the gift of prose He has given you to share with us! 🙂
