Reveal: Listen: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: Romans 8: 19

“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God;”

How hard is it for you to wait for something good? Do the minutes feel like hours? Do days begin to feel endless? What about the times we have to wait in uncertainty—not knowing whether the outcome will bring relief or distress.

What words are you waiting for the Lord to say to you? For an answer to a hidden yearning?

Often foreboding and fear can begin to creep into our thoughts and prayers. Even when we look towards something or someone with anticipation and hope, a delay can raise questions and doubts and worries.

But creation waits with purpose and expectation regardless of the time. There is no doubt of God’s fulfillment. The only question is when.

“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19

Creation waits in whole trust of a concrete completion. Still in longing but with an attitude of knowing and watching. Eager anticipation that lasts through days and months and years. Trusting in God’s time and in God’s promises.

Lord, please help us to perceive and follow You in complete trust too. With wonder.

Psalm of Worship: Proverbs 8:18

“Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity.”
