One day in my suffering
’twas unto God I cried,
“Please send Your healing angel
to stand here at my side!” But God did not answer.
Day after day I begged
for Him to come heal me,
to take away the pain
and to end my misery. Still there was no answer.
After a month of pleading
for anything He would do,
when I felt no better
I was losing all hope too. Again there was no answer.
So I began to worry
and ask what I had done.
When my worry became doubt
in my Most Holy One! Yet He never said a word.
When unto Him I yelled
that He’d abandoned me
and flew into a rage
’cause no help did I see, Silence was all I heard.
I threw up my hands
while saying that I quit!
Whatever He must want of me
I surely did not have it, And in my spirit I heard:
Wait a minute, is that all?
Upon Me you’ll no longer call?
Into the devil’s trap you’ll fall?
Am I not your One & All When I have paid the cost?
What of suffering do you know?
Felt the pain of a whip’s blow?
As rejection’s heat did grow
how deep did your faith go? And how quickly was it lost?
You must learn more of Me,
if My face you strive to see
then patiently do wait on Me
before a miracle will ever be, And welcome to the cross!
