In the Waiting

I heard this new song on my way to work yesterday. The imagery of the lyrics really spoke to me ~ I feel as if I am 'in the waiting' ~ waiting for the surgeries ~ waiting to see what life will look like on the other side of brain surgery. I know it's not going to be an instant change ~ the healing process will be gradual, like watching the frozen ground thaw after a long, hard winter. How perfect that the timing of the surgeries coincides with the changing of the seasons. As I anticipate the coming of springtime I will experience the renewing of my spirit and body.

In The Waiting

I’ve seen the red sea part,
I’ve seen the mountains move
But now it seems so dark,
I can’t even feel you
If you chose to be silent I’ll be silent too
I will worship in the waiting,
quiet before you
Until your voice like manna from the sky falls
I WILL WORSHIP IN THE WAITING
I WILL WALK WITH THIS SAND BENEATH MY FEET
THOUGH THE WINTER WIND IS BLOWING
THE GROUND IS NOT FROZEN UNDERNEATH
I WILL WORSHIP AND NOT GROW BITTER
CAUSE I KNOW YOU SEE THE END OF IT ALL
AND WITH THE SPRING WILL COME THE RAIN
AND I'LL SEE WHAT WAS GAINED
IN THE WAITING

I’ve seen the blooms of spring,
new life in everything
But now it seems so grey, bright colors fade away
This winter seems much longer and colder than before
But I will worship in the waiting, expecting something more
Until the sun shines warm upon my face again
He Leadeth me He leadeth me
By his own hand He leadeth me
His faithful follower I would be
For by his hand He leadeth me
