I look to you, seek you,
and wait upon your hand and guidance.
What I saw as my cage with iron bars,
is your protection and strong hand hemming me in.
Where I feel stuck,
you are working out the deeper things,
your Spirit moving in the hidden places of the heart,
growing, maturing, and strengthening me in ways I don’t yet understand.
When I am angry, frustrated, discouraged, and desperate,
and I finally give up my own willful efforts,
your hand reaches in,
once more bringing comfort and encouragement,
reassuring me that everything is alright.
You’re with me, that’s all I need to know.
I know you plans are to prosper me and not to harm me,
and that you work all things for your glory and my good.
I am blessed and in strong, safe hands.
I love you Abba,
