Getting Ahead of God


On this journey with Christ, it can be so very easy to race ahead ...

Poem Copyrighted - Debbie Porter (2002)


"Then Moses said to him, "If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here."
~ Exodus 33:15 NIV ~



There's one thing I have noticed,
Since my Christian walk begun,
And that's my growing passion
For the Father, Spirit, Son.

With every day that passes
There's a hunger more and more
To live and breathe the message
Of the One that I adore.

Although at times I falter,
And my pace may sometimes slow,
God's always there to guide me,
And His perfect way to show.

He is my strength both day and night.
No greater friend I'll meet.
When solid ground begins to shake,
He's the rock beneath my feet.

So with this strong assurance
Of God's steadfast, faithful love,
You'd think that I would always seek,
His wisdom from above.

Yet all too often, I'm afraid,
I fail to wait and ask
Before I race to action -
Jumping first into the task.

It's when I find myself neck deep
In trouble, mess and strife,
I stop and take some time to think
'Bout this detour in my life.

That's when I hear God's gentle voice,
Murmured whisper to my soul,
Reminding me that in my hands
Was a piece, but not the whole.

"My precious child, you only saw
The smallest little part
Of the vision that I have for you.
I never said to start."

"I didn't tell you when to go,
Or where the dream would lead.
There's a little bit of work to do
That's why you shouldn't speed!"

"Stay close to me and watch and wait,
Until the time is right
Then when you start upon My way,
The road will blaze with light."

"No more wrong turns to misdirect,
Dead ends will cease to be.
Your feet will always be secure,
If You'll wait and follow Me."

So once again I heed God's voice,
And slow my eager feet.
I know the day will come when I
Step out on vision street.

Our Lord is not a man who lies,
He doesn't tease and cheat.
The work He started through our lives,
He's promised to complete.

For now it's patience all the way,
Not straining at the bit.
For when that perfect time is right,
That dream is going to fit.
