Content to linger, content to rest -
content to wait for Your very best.
And though it seems You tarry long,
In the night You give a song
And whisper, "Wait, be still."
Content to linger, content to stay
Content to wait for Your perfect way.
Knowing You are in conrol,
I rest the keeping of my soul
Upon Your loving will.
..for they shall not be ashamed that wait for Me.
What rest, what peace there is in surrendering our way and will to our all-knowing, wise and loving Father. What assurance there is in knowing that He truly cares for His own and will not subject us to unnecessary pain or waiting. The path He chooses is for good, and so we are able to rest in His leading, be it slow, or perhaps a path we might not necessarily have chosen for ourselves, but as Mrs. Charles Spurgeon once said, "It is a mercy that our lives are not left for us to plan, but that our Father chooses for us; else we might sometimes turn away from our best blessings, and put away from us the choicest and loveliest gifts of His providence."
