Urgently Waiting

To be found praying
Working and watching

There is a conundrum
That in my head does drum
Ba Ra pa pa pa pum
And I am sure besides me it confuses some
We certainly know Jesus will come
If it were not so then a promise of return He would’ve made none
But in the mean time, what is to be done

I mean, do we just sit on our thumbs?
Do we wait for the pin to drop like a grenade bomb
Like we’re on pause now until we move on
Like dashers on their marks awaiting the sound of a gun
Or assassin ninjas awaiting the command of a Shogun

Or is taking over the world our main aim
Not like Pinky and the Brain
But to make our way into positions to sustain
And make policies that change the game

I don’t know to what God has called you
But this much remains true
God is God through and through
And He has a role for you

You see the big picture, don’t you
The world being taken by the besetting dark dew
But the light stands its ground and comes through
The Great Controversy ensues
Hoping that today, just one more could be rescued
Yes, always keep this reality in view
And this picture is made of brush strokes too
Or pixels too
If you like the more modern view

To be found praying
Working and watching

Tis not either or
Maybe an example we can’t ignore

Knowing that the shameful death was in His view
Christ did not cease to pursue
The task given today to do
Whether that was planing wood
Making yokes that for time withstood
Or being the good
In Nazareth’s hood
Everyday He would ask strength for the day
And from Him, a bright hope for tomorrow they could see

We say called into ministry
But it seems His life was a ministry
Don’t wait for the drama today day
Seek Him today and today and today
And the role of the fool, you won’t play
Found He will be, if seek Him you may
From filth, pray
Ask for a heart of purity
And He will show you the Way
Therefore, they may call you many names
But “double-minded” they cannot say
And let the pride of today
Be replaced with humility
Knowing, He knows better than me

“Instead of exhausting the powers of our mind in speculations in regard to the times and seasons which the Lord has placed in His own power, and withheld from men, we are to yield ourselves to the control of the Holy Spirit, to do present duties, to give the bread of life, unadulterated with human opinions, to souls who are perishing for the truth.”
