I wait.

I wait.
Dear Lord, Thy ways 
Are past finding out,

Thy love too high.
O hold me still
Beneath Thy shadow.

It is enough that Thou
Lift up the light 
of Thy countenance.

I wait-
Because I am commanded 
so to do. My mind
Is filled with wonderings
My soul asks "why"
But then the quiet word,
"wait thou only upon God."
And so, not even for the light
to show a step ahead, 
But for Thee, dear Lord
I wait.
{Elizabeth Elliot}


  1. Not hard to guess that I also copied that into my journal. Beautiful. And that droplet on the leaf picture? Wow.

  2. I love that comment too! Beautiful pictures, and a wonderful reminder. :)
