"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him."
"God wants us to be expectant before Him. . .
to wait patiently, but with hope,
to work diligently, but with the understanding
that to HIM belong the final results of all our efforts."
The above song was recorded when the Lord brought me to a major crisis during the summer of 2008--where I had to surrender my will over to His. . .even though what He was asking me to do made no sense to me. As I was on the floor, face down, praying, and "giving up my grasp on this situation," thunder and lightning crashed and flashed right over our house. What a battle was raging within and outside too! After the storm passed, and all was quiet, He led me to record this arrangement. When I listened to the final recording, it was as if He were telling me, "I am not done with you, My child. You've released your grasp on life, and given Me 'permission' to begin a new chapter; and this song will be a memorial to the 'death of your desires and dreams,' and the beginning of a new chapter in life."
When I surrender to Your will, I:
Understand that I must
Expecting the best
Results: because You only want what's best for me; and I'll never be satisfied unless I am fulfilling "Your kingdom purpose" while I'm on earth. I am trusting You with all my heart. In Jesus' Name. . . Amen.
