While God is testing my faith
Will I run to and fro in haste
Or patiently wait?
As He measures my commitment
Can I bear the resistance?
Or will I greet the Father with resentment?
Will my praise turn to obligatory confessions?
Will I remain pure while He teaches me these lessons?
Of how to persevere, overcome, suffer long- even when He seems quiet
Outwardly I’m composed but inside, theirs a riot
A temper tantrum if you will, of a child that can’t sit still
That is getting antsy in Your will, but I vow to stay put even still
For fear of wavering, misbehaving and having to restart the test
Father as you examine me help me to do what’s best
Help to follow Jesus example as He was tempted of the devil
Remind me that the enemy is still under my feet, never on my level
Despite his huffing and puffing, He is just your instrument
You use Him to reveal the motives of my hearts intent
For this assignment, Dad, I’ll need more than I knew I had
I’ll patiently endure this process as you make my faith iron clad
