Not Yet!

Sometimes I ask the question, 

"My Lord, is this your will?" 

It's then I hear you answer me, 

"My Precious Child ... be still." 


Sometimes I feel frustrated, 

cause I think know what's best. I

t's then I hear you say to me, 

"My Busy Child ... just rest" 


Sometimes I feel so lonely 

and I think I'd like a mate. 

Your still small voice gets oh so clear 

and says, "My Child ... please wait" 


"I know the plans I have for you, 

the wondrous things you'll see; 

If you can just be patient, 

Child, and put your trust in me. 


I've plans to draw you closer. 

I've plans to help you grow. 

There's much I do you cannot see 

and much you do not know. 


But know this, Child ... I LOVE YOU. 

You are Precious unto Me. 

Before I formed you in the womb, 

I planned your destiny. 


I've something very special 

I hope for you to learn. 

The gifts I wish to give to you 

are gifts you cannot earn. 


They come without a price tag, 

but not without a cost; at Calvary, 

I gave My Son, so You would not be lost. 

Rest Child, and do not weary of doing what is good. 


I promise I'll come back for you just like I said I would. 

Your name is written on my palm, 

I never could forget; 

Therefore, do not be discouraged 

when my answer is... "Not Yet"
