Until then I’ll wait

As a single lady, I understand the challenges and pressure that may come with this period. Have you ever let someone that seemed like the ‘one’ into your heart and it doesn’t end up working? I have been there and I can tell you for free that it hurts! I came across this poem originally written by Robin Jones Gunn and it encouraged me to completely submit this area of my life to God; so I thought to share. Be encouraged, the Lord will make everything beautiful at the right time.

Here it goes:

Within my heart a garden grows

Wild with violets and fragrant rose.

Bright daffodils line the narrow path

My footsteps silent as I pass.

Sweet tulips nod their heads in rest,

I kneel in prayer to seek God’s best.

For round my garden a fence stands firm

To guard my heart so I can learn

Who should enter and who should wait

On the other side of my locked gate.

I clasp the key around my neck

And wonder if the time is yet

If I unlocked the gate today

Would he come in or run away?

I don’t want to hold this key

Lord, will You keep it safe for me?

Then when he comes

If he’s the one

You’ll unlock the gate

Until then, I’ll wait.

Poem culled from: Praying for your Future Husband by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer, pg.95.

Wishing you an amazing day, the lines are falling in pleasant places for you!
