Not Yet

Sometimes I ask the question,
"My Lord, is this your will?" 
It's then I hear you answer me,
"my precious child... be still."

Sometimes I feel frustrated,
cause I think I know what's best.
It's then I hear you say to me,
"my busy child... just rest"

Sometimes I feel so lonely
and I think I'd like a mate.
Your still small voice gets oh so clear
and says, "my child... please wait"

"I know the plans I have for you,
the wondrous things you'll see;
if you can just be patient, child,
and put your trust in me.

I've plans to draw you closer.
I've plans to help you grow.
There's much I do you cannot see
and much you do not know.

But know this, child ... I love you.
You are precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb,
I planned your destiny.

I've something very special
I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you
are gifts you cannot earn.

They come without a price tag,
but not without a cost;
at Calvary, I gave My Son,
so You would not be lost.

Rest child, and do not weary
of doing what is good.
I promise I'll come back for you
just like I said I would.

Your name is written on my palm,
I never could forget;
therefore, do not be discouraged
when my answer is... "Not Yet".
