it's not about us
Father, we come . . .
wanting to know if we should.
wanting to know if it's Your plan.
wanting to know if we are right.
You slow us to wait.
You slow us to see.
You slow us to hear.
we feel your presence here, in the quiet.
we feel your provision here, in the waiting.
we feel your patience here, in the anxiousness.
You tell us it's not about their obedience.
You tell us it's not about his response.
You tell us it's not about our convictions.
our pride is broken as we see our control.
our pride is broken as we hear our judgments.
our pride is broken as we feel our anger.
You make us new.
You make us brave.
You make us trust.
give us Your peace, even as we wonder.
give us Your Bread, even as we want.
give us Your patience, even as we wait.
. . . because it's all about You, Father . . . only You.
