I found something the other day.
I was looking for an empty journal and came across some of my old journals. I can get lost whenever I find my journals. It’s such a weird feeling reading through my thoughts from years ago. As I was scanning through one of my very first journals I found a little poem that I wrote all the way back in 2015. Of course when I wrote that poem then, I had no idea that future me would still be in this season of waiting.
Stumbling upon this little poem has encouraged my heart greatly and reminded me so much of how God’s ways truly are best. Even though I’m still waiting for the things my heart desires most, I can rest in knowing that God is working for me and not against me. God’s timing will be better. This little poem from my past reminded me of that truth.
So here’s the little poem, I called it “Why, Why?”
I keep asking why, why? Why does this keep happening to me Why am I not where I want to be I keep asking when, when? When will I understand my life When will it all make sense to me I keep asking how, how? How will it come together in the end How can I make any sense out of this I keep asking and asking You keep listening and listening All is silent Then I hear you You keep saying trust, trust Trust in My plan for you Trust that I know what I’m doing You keep saying wait, wait Wait and it will soon make sense Wait and you will be rewarded So I say yes, yes Yes your plan is best for me Yes I will trust you and wait patiently
