1 Why Wait

Why wait for something thats already here?
Waiting out of ignorance or of fear.

There's no need in asking for which you already own,
Within awaits his presence still unknown.

All this asking and waiting, in vain we pray,
Asking Him to be more than He was yesterday.

God hasn't changed in billions of years,
Don't expect Him to change with repetition or tears.

For God will hold the planets in space,
While attending his flock with love and grace.

No need to wait - God won't change His plan,
To answer desires given Him by man.

For it's mans obligation to uncover the shroud,
And reveal what Gods been shouting out loud.

The birds and trees, how effortless they grow.
The work of Gods love both do they show.

We must learn from both fowel and plant,
To let God's love do, what man's love can't.

So when we pray, let it be known -
Gods power is His and His alone!
