You answered a prayer I didn’t even know I had.
A prayer that was stuffed under so many skeletons of my soul,
that I was scared to even request it of You.
But you heard my heart-prayer
and answered in Your perfect timing.
I thought I was ready for the answer
But when it didn’t come,
I gave up and walked away;
thinking I had hid it from me and You.
I wasn’t ready before. I wasn’t strong enough.
I needed to wait. To look to You above all else.
You knew that; I didn’t.
You protected my heart and prepared my mind
for that moment. So I could say
What I needed with perspective
Thank You for Your provision.
For Your protection.
For Your wisdom.
For making me wait.
Thank You for knowing me so intimately
You know the depths of my heart.
You gave me a gift I never thought I deserved
Because of my disobedience.
Thank You for forgiveness and faithfulness.
