Lord, I am so grateful
That You made me sit down
And be still before You.
For if You had allowed me to keep the pace
at which I am so accustomed to keeping
I would have missed it
when You kissed me on my cheek.
If You had continued to answer my prayers
for mighty miracles
I would have missed the victory in hearing
Your still small voice.
I would have sunk
in the anxiety of not understanding
instead of rejoicing at Your sovreignty
in all of my details.
I would have continued to focus only on
seeing You move mightly before me
instead of realizing that You
are walking so closely along side of me.
For I know You are quite capable
of marvelous works beyond my comprehension
But now I also know of the glory
that comes with walking hand-in-hand beside You.
