My Lord, Is This Your Will?

Sometimes I ask the question,
"My Lord, is this your will?"
It's then I hear you answer me,
"My Precious Child... Be still."
Sometimes I feel frustrated,
cause I think I know what's best.
It's then I hear you say to me,
"My Busy Child... Just rest."
Sometimes I feel so lonely,
and I think I'd like a mate.
Your whispering voice gets oh so clear
and says, "My Child...Please wait."
"I know the plans I have for you,
the wondrous things you'll see;
If you can just be patient, Child,
and put your trust in me.
I've plans to draw you closer.
I've plans to help you grow.
There's much I do you cannot see,
and much you do not know.
But know this, child...I LOVE YOU,
You are Precious unto Me.
Before I formed you in the womb,
I planned your destiny.
I've something very special
I hope for you to learn.
The gifts I wish to give to you
are gifts you cannot earn.
They come without a price tag,
but not without a cost;
at Calvary, I gave My Son,
so You would not be lost.
Rest Child, and do not weary
while doing what is good.
I promise I'll come back for you,
just like I said I would.
Your name is written in my palm,
I never could forget;
Therefore, do not be discouraged,
when my answer is... "Not Yet"
