Expectation

August 5, 2011

~
I wait in expectation
For you to draw near to me
Teach me what I need to know
To reflect your love
 
This greater joy comes
When I confront illusions
False idols I will call them
Born in childhood
 
They run deep and are toxic
Hidden in the secret place
Unconsciously in my soul
There is only one cure
 
A friend who loves me deeply
Who gives me bread for my soul
Only the Holy Spirit
Dismantles the lies
 
I am powerless
When I arise in the day
Controlled by a bitter way
I cry out for help
I found God to be faithful
Compassionate and giving
