I pray - I wait - and I wonder.
I wonder at the knowledge that God hears me
that He loves me and
that He cares about what concerns me.
I wonder how He will answer my prayer
Not if He will answer,
but how he will answer...and when.
I wonder how He will take the perplexities in my life
and turn them around for my good.
I wonder how He will use these circumstances to mold
me into the image of Christ.
I wonder at the hardships He allows so that I may grow
and comfort others with the comfort
He has given me
through the storms.
I wonder at the blessings He pours out
undeniably an outpouring of grace.
I look up...in wonder
and gaze into the face of
"Who among the gods is like you, Lord?
Who is like you— majestic in holiness,
awesome in glory, working wonders?"
