Our Wondering, Waiting and Watching
By Veronika West
In our wonderings… in our waiting and watching…. let us remember
His Goodness… His Works of great Miracles… He is alive and will do them again…!
● Would you really walk off and leave me forever, my LORD God?
Won’t you show me your kind favor, delighting in me again?
Has your well of sweet mercy dried up?
Will your promises never come true?
Have you somehow forgotten to show me love?
Are you so angry that you’ve closed your heart of compassion toward me?
LORD, what wounds me most is that it’s somehow my fault that you’ve changed your heart toward me and I no longer see the years of the Mighty One or your right hand of power.
I could never forget all your miracles, my God, as I remember all your wonders of old.
I ponder all you’ve done, LORD, musing on all your miracles.
here in your presence, in your sanctuary, where I learn more of your ways, for holiness is revealed in everything you do.
● LORD, you’re THE ONE and ONLY, the GREAT and GLORIOUS GOD!
● Your display of wonders, miracles, and power MAKES THE NATIONS ACKNOWLEDGE YOU!
● By your glory-bursts you’ve RESCUED US OVER AND OVER!
Just ask the sons of Jacob or the sons of Joseph, and they will tell you!
And all of us, your beloved ones, know that it’s TRUE!
● When the many waters of the Red Sea took one look at you, they were afraid and ran away to hide — trembling to its depths!
Storm clouds filled with water high in the skies; cloudbursts
and thunderclaps ANNOUNCED YOUR APPROACH.
Lightning-flashes lit up the landscape.
● Rolling whirlwinds exploded with sonic booms of thunder,
rumbling as the skies shouted out your story with light and sound and wind.
Everything on earth shook and trembled as YOU DREW NEAR!
● Your STEPS
formed a highway through the seas with footprints on a pathway no one even knew was there.
● You LED your people FORWARD by your loving hand, blessed by the leadership of Moses and Aaron.
Blessings to you all.
