A New Song

Being patient and waiting can be so hard at times.
When life isn't going exactly like we want it to.
Low days that causes us to stop and consider what 
is or isn't 'just right' . When we rush into making
choices or decisions instead of considering the
consequences. Most of us can relate to this. I certainly can.

Psalm 40:1-5 tells us of a time in Davids life when he was depressed and at a low place, when he needed rescuing.
Verse 1
"I waited patiently for the Lord, and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry".

Waiting patiently isn't easy, especially for me. I like to ''get things done'' when I think they should be--but maybe that isn't the right timing!  My Lord is patient and many times in my life he's waited for me to realize this. When I wait for His directions then it begins to unfold and life gets better. I am at this place now waiting for His timing!
verse :17
"I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh on me
thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

The last 6 weeks has been hard in our life,
making decisions that will change our lifestyle,
waiting and praying over each one and still 
waiting for it all to come about.
God has put 'A New Song' in my heart and on my lips.

"I Want my Lord to be Satisfied with me"

One glorious day Jesus came and made me whole
He completely then satisfied my soul.
Now as I face lifes dark troubled stormy sea.
I wonder if He is satisfied with me.

I'm satisfied with God's great redemption plan.
I'm satisfied it's sufficient for all man.
I'm satisfied with his work at Calvary,
but is my Lord satisfied with me.

Lord give me strength, give me courage, make me
That I may lead some lost sheep into the fold.
That I might stand unafraid to move for thee. 
That you might be fully satisfied with me.


I want my Lord to be satisfied with me.
I want my life to be what He'd have it be.
And when I come to that great eternity 
His smile will say that He is satisfied with me.

As I wait for the next chapter of our life to begin I pray "God's Will be done".

Have a Blessed Sunday!



  1. OH Sylvia! I am praying that everything falls in place for you, too. It IS hard to wait. I am a "get-er-done" type of person, too, so I know exactly how you feel. I don't like that feeling of being in limbo and not being able to move forward. It is hard to do. I kept thinking it would get easier as I got older (and tired easier) but it hasn't. lol
    I will pray for some peace-of-heart for you as you wait to see how things are going to unwind. We know it is all in the Lord's hands but, being human, we want to take charge anyway. Blessings to you- xo Diana

  2. Joining with you and praying for God to give you patience and wisdom in these life decisions. Over the last 3 years, we've made some major changes and like NanaDiana, I know how you feel. Sunday blessings to you.

  3. Yes, it is so hard to wait, we want it done our way and now! thanks for posting and reminding me.

  4. Bless you, Sylvia, as you patiently wait on what The Lord has in store for you. I needed reminded of that, too.

  5. God is directing your steps one step at a time. He will NOT fail you...He has promised! We are looking forward to hearing all about your new adventure. It will all work out exactly as God has planned for HIS time! Blessings to you my friend.

  6. What a beautiful post, Sylvia. I think so many of us face things that could change the familiar way that we live, etc, We just never know what God may have in store for any of us but He will guide us and strengthen us to adhere to the changes... that's what He does best. Whatever changes you face, it sounds like you are staying near to God and letting Him lead! Many blessings to you!

  7. Well, what a pleasant surprise to see you! I was so shocked that your blog was gone... Please don't give it up. We love you!
    I know you are going through a lot of changes, but blogging gives us sisters in the Lord that help buffer the blows and the strong winds. You are needed here; I am so glad you were able to retrieve your original blog! I have missed you!
    Hugs, Roxy

  8. Sylvia, I loved this post today. I want to be the person the Lord wants me to be. We have to let God lead. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  9. This is so beautifully expressed. Maybe someday we can ask God in person to show us that clock he operates on, wound to "his time!" I'm sure he'd laugh and say, "Now, if only you'd trusted me, you'd have seen that MY time was the BEST time!"

  10. I started thinking early this morning about something I have been praying to God for months. I was getting impatient. After reading this blog, I've stepped back and am waiting on God. Have a blessed day.

  11. Love, love, love your post today. I can certainly relate, in fact my 'special' word for 2015 is 'patience.' Something I constantly strive to have. It's crazy, I know the Lord's timing is best and I always give him my 'issues, situations, request....and then I take them back. I've know the Lord for many years and I'm still a work in progress. I love the scripture in Hebrews 13, He will never forsake us! Hope you've had a very happy and blessed SonDay.

  12. Oh, I forgot....your Christmas header is so pretty!

  13. Yes, it sure is hard to wait. I waited two years for a problem to be settled with my sister. Lots of prayers....the Lord took care of it this summer...His timing!
