Waiting on The Lord

HAVE I an object, Lord, below,
Which would divide my heart from Thee; 
Which would divert its even flow

In answer to Thy constancy?

Oh, teach me quickly to return,

And cause my heart afresh to burn!

Have I a hope, however dear,

Which would defer Thy coming, Lord,

Which would detain my spirit here,

Where nought can lasting joy afford?

From it, my Saviour, set me free

To look and long and wait for Thee.

Be Thou the object bright and fair

To fill and satisfy the heart;                             

My hope to meet Thee in the air,

And nevermore from Thee to part;

That I may undistracted be

To follow, serve, and wait for Thee

By George West Frazer (Hymn)

Lord may I , as I " wait on you"  be broken bread and poured out wine for the love of my dear Savior!

About Me

My photo
WE HAVE THIS TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS THAT THE EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD. I am the wife Of Don and mother of two boys and a stay at home mom. My goal is to follow Jesus in all aspects of life but starting first and foremost in my own home.Titus 2:3-5 I stumble often and get discouraged, but am amazed as I go to my Lord in faith that he looks upon me with compassion, forgiveness and love each and every time. His love for me seems to increase as I keep going back to His throne of grace!! Of course I know His love never changes, but my ability to see His love increases each time He picks me up, dusts me off and says "keep on going Ruth.... I love you!" And because of His great love, I am falling more and more in love with Him each and every day.
