I Shall Wait in Your Sight

I read this poem in the book, Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting by Holly Whitcomb, which I finished today.

A good reminder to keep myself in the Word as I go through this painful confusion and muddle through each unknown that seems to get more and more pronounced each day.

"For Reassurance" ~ by Debbie Perlman

I shall wait in Your sight:
Prepare me with Your teachings;
Place knowledge as a screen,
A shelter against winds of adversity.

I shall wait in Your sight:
Animate me with Your teachings;
Invigorate my days with purpose,
Enlarge my actions with meaning.

I shall wait in Your sight:
Empower me with Your teachings;
Let my thirst never be quenched,
Let me drink from Your well.

I shall wait in Your sight:
Secure in who I am,
I will push back the webs of worry
To face my daily challenges.

I shall wait in Your sight:
Secure in Who You are,
I will lean against Your teaching
To guide my daily acts.

  1. Hi Brittany,
    I just happened across your blog in an unrelated google search. I was struck that you are in a period of waiting. Like you, I read Holly Whitcomb's book. In fact, I blogged about waiting a year ago August. Anyway, just wanted you to know you're not alone. And, that reading your blog reminds me that I am not alone. blessings, molly
