Waiting for the Stars

018

The late afternoon sky resembled a

Tranquil and deep blue sea.

A hint of powder white clouds

Are floating by so effortlessly.

A crescent moon has settled on high

Like a heavenly nightlight in the sky.

The streaming sunlight continues to diminish

Being chased away by the encroaching darkness.

The air is cool as evening approaches

Reminding me to don on warmer clothes.

A quietness reigns in the brisk mountain air

With the soft chirping of a cricket choir.

I sat on the porch waiting in anticipation

To see all the stars that nighttime may bring.

Such a long time since I have seen

The stars at night so brightly shining;

Glowing and glittering in awesome wonder

While stretching above across the universe.

I shall sit and wait here in this still quietness

To see those twinkling gems before I rest.

Friday Verse Journal Isaiah 40:31

Whew!! Another busy week of completing my work and depending on the Lord. Am thankful for a restful Saturday. I had eagerly checked my email hoping for a positive response of acceptance for a story I recently wrote but that didn’t happen. So back to the drawing board of writing and rewriting. Once again feeling some disappointment and wondering why?  Also this is just one of many hurts and disappointments to come along.  And I realize that I am not alone. Many of us start down a path in life hoping for success and a sense of purpose in what we do both in our professional and personal lives. And things just don’t go the way we think. Need to keep remembering that God does know what is best for each person. Through prayer, reading God’s Word,  and obedience, I need to just wait and keep trusting in the Lord for all things and let him strengthen and show me the way in his good time. However, as I struggle, I must admit this is easier said than done.

Isaiah 40:31 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):

“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not grow faint.”
