I STILL AWAIT YOUR ANSWER
If I might be so bold, might I ask, what do you want?
What requirements have I neglected, what price have I not paid,
That you see fit not to grant me the desire of my heart.
What I ask for is not hard for the maker of all that exists,
Nor should it seem to be an impossible task for an Almighty God.
My life has always been simple, I’ve never asked for much.
I’ve never asked for money or wealth like most men would ask,
For I know what such things lead to.
I’ve not asked for fame or recognition, which many certainly crave,
For I know that those things are really hollow facades.
I’ve not asked for might or power, for which men all covet,
For I know that you are the Kingdom, Power and Glory.
I’m content in the life that you’ve designed for me,
One where I can effect change and expect my reward when I reach Glory.
I’ve never really asked you for things that I wanted,
For wants are mostly requested out of selfish desires.
Instead, I’ve only asked you for needs, the basis necessities,
The simple staples of life; those things that are needed to survive.
But for years I’ve only had one request, only one desire for my flesh,
The love of a good woman who loves you and can love me.
Oh, I love the amusing antidote that my friends have said for years,
“God’s making that special one just for you.”
Does it take the same God who made all that exits, made it in six days;
Does it take you so many years to knit together one single woman?
Dear Yahweh, I know that they’re enigmatic, yes, maybe even for you,
But what do you answer, when will you hearken to the voice of my cry?
I only look for answers, for a sign or perhaps, maybe, some results.
Why the silence O Yahweh, where’s her presentation?
I’ve admitted my sin Yahweh, I’ve confessed my shortcomings.
In foolishness I did set out on my own to fulfill my need for a companion.
Like a blind man I did fall into many pits and stumbled over the goads.
I’ve allowed my heart to love those for what ever reason, couldn’t reciprocate.
I’ve allowed feigned lovers to lead my heart down a primrose path,
Only to have them push my heart off of the precipice at the end of the trail,
And to have it cut asunder on the sharp rocks below.
Yet each time you were faithful Yahweh, you picked up it’s pieces and made it new.
You healed this wounded man and rebuilt what was once destroyed.
Yes I’ve learned Yeshua, I’ve learned to obey and I’ve learned to listen.
And although I listen, I do not hear an answer; silence is my portion.
Be silent no longer Yahweh, speak to me in a clear and concise manner.
Whatever the answer, I’ll heed and obey, even if it is contrary to my desire.
I will continue to sit and wait for your answer Yahweh,
I pray that it comes quickly and that I hear it astutely.
And I promise to accept your decision with gladness and joy.
