The day seemed like it was going to end
With no answer to my prayer in sight
Then suddenly a text message came in
I would get temporary help before the night
It’s no permanent answer for what I prayed
But Jesus let me know He hasn’t forgotten my case
Because right before I’m about to give up
He does something to reassure His love
Lord, While I’m waiting for the full course
Thanks for providing me snacks
While I’m waiting for the house
Thanks for providing me a room
While I’m waiting for You to open the windows of Heaven
Thanks for taking something small and making it enough
These signs reassure Your love.
Sometimes it seems an answer to a prayer will never come. This can cause hopelessness and despair to set in. But just before they do, the Lord will show some signs that He is still working on the answer to the prayer. He reassures His love to keep us from giving up to hopelessness. Lamentations 3:25 says The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
