I await, I await.

Oh Heavenly Father,

oh how the world has changed.

It is nothing like yesterday.

The memory is becoming faint.

What can I do to take hold of you.

To remember how much you are faithful and true.

I remember your promises and how you shared with me your brokenness.

And how you released to me your blessedness.

It was this that saved my life,

that you would bring me out of strife.

I remember your presence so dear,

but now it can seem as if your aren’t near.

But then I remember, how much you shared,

that you would take my greatest fear.

Lord, Lord, I remember how much you stood,

for me when I knew you would.

You have been my rock always standing,

even when my heart couldn’t stand it.

You, Lord, have my heart,

for you were there for me from the start.

I await, my Lord, for you to appear,

for you hold my heart so near.

You are the One, I’ve waited for.

You are much better, than I thought before.

I await. I await. My heart awaits. You are my Savior.

In you alone, I pray I have favor.

I trust you with my life,

because you have daily bare my strife.

You knew me from the beginning,

and then you took me in your house, even though I was sinning.

I await. I await. I know you are near.

I am here, waiting for you to appear, because I know that you are always near.

Go forth and be blessed my friends.

As I read John 16, I think about the disciples and what Jesus told them. In John 16:12 (NIV), Jesus says,

I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.

I can only imagine how terrified the disciples might be if they were transported to see everything we live with today.

I wonder what the disciples would point out to us. And I wonder what they would have to say about the world we live in right now.

The disciples would definitely witness that we live in a world of chaos. They might even say that we were a lost cause.

I love what Jesus tells us in verse 13,

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.

I am so glad that we have Jesus who sent the Spirit of truth to us to guide us in truth. This is the Holy Spirit, our counselor. We need the Holy Spirit to live a life the way Jesus told us that we would need to live, and he is available to us today, right now.

Where are you today? Do you acknowledge the Spirit of truth as important in your life?

What message does Jesus send to you through the Holy Spirit today? Does he know you? Make things right with God today, for you do not know what tomorrow brings.

How to know Jesus

Go forth and be blessed my friend.
