Delay Is Not Denial
By June Stein
Delay is not denial,
For God knows what is best,
He knows every part of us;
In this knowledge, we can rest.
There is a time for everything,
And reasons that we cannot know,
Why we must wait, expectantly,
Although the answers seem so slow.
Our loving God is never late,
His purposes will be fulfilled,
In His good time, His answers come,
And all our questions will be stilled.
The answer may not be the one,
That we were looking for,
But rest assured, the one He gives,
Will help us so much more.
Perhaps in ways we’ll never know,
Until the end of time,
For to see the final view,
There are mountains we must climb.
‘For now we see in a mirror dimly; but then face to face:
now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.’
[1 Corinthians 13:12]
