Daily Bread

There’s a restlessness in the soul of man;
nobody’s tamed it yet
You never fail to keep any promises
but somehow we forget-...
You have the wisdom and the patience; we need Your grace to see it clear

Too soon and we take it all for granted, too late and it’s more than we can bear.
So You’re always right on time, with an open hand,
You have exactly what I need-
"Daily Bread" - Jill Phillips from "Nobody's Got it All Together "
I am not sure if it was Jill or Andy who penned these words - but they are wonderful - I love this CD - you can also find it on noisetrade.

You have the wisdom and the patience; we need Your grace to see it clear, Too soon and we take it all for granted, too late and it’s more than we can bear. 

As I reflect on these lines so many thoughts come to mind. Do I mind the thought of crossing lines of sorrow that allow me to see the reflection of His face?  I do. I waiver between fear and faith as He grows the spiritual muscle necessary to stand still at His side.   My inclination rather than standing is often to fall full on the floor in a fit, or worse,  turn in full dart towards the more comfortable, albeit, deceitful and death bearing idol of denial of pain.    I am finding more and more that daily bread in times of sorrow  looks and feels like standing still and eating the pain with the truth that I can trust the Lord and throwing the fear away from me by repenting of my unbelief that He is other than "always right on time, with an open hand."

Sometimes it is so hard to be willing to wait on his time.
