In The Fullness Of Time

May 29, 2017

God will always give what He has promised.   But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,  to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” Galatians 4:4-5

I love you my child

But you must wait

In the fullness of time

I’ll make you great,


Mature in my Word

Read and meditate

Examine your heart

Then I’ll make you great,


Disappointed and dejected

I leave for the day

Trying to figure out

How to get my way,


What can I do

Is my inquire

To satisfy my feelings

Is my only desire,


There must be something

God wants me to do

But that which it is

I don’t have a clue,


I must do something

Other than wait

Life is passing by

And it’s getting late,


I return on tomorrow

And God says no

It’s still not time

So you must go,


Don’t be discouraged

I know what’s best

Have patience my child

And take a rest,


Rest from you work

And rest from your worry

Learn to wait

And not be in a hurry,


Be anxious for nothing

And learn to be content

I told you to wait

And that’s what I meant,


Disappointed again

And filled with sorrow

Doesn’t God know

I don’t have many tomorrows,


I want it now

And don’t want to wait

Give it to me Lord

And don’t hesitate,


I know what I can do

I can pray and fast

And that will move

God’s hand at last,


I’ll also serve

And give to the poor

Surely that will suffice

And God will open the door,


So I went and did

All that I had planned

And returned to God

To seek His hand,


Only to find

That there was nothing there

How can that be

I asked in despair,


He looked upon me

And had little to say

I love you my child

Just OBEY,


From the very beginning

I told you my will

I told you to wait

And just be still,


In the fullness of time

In that very hour

You’ll have what you want

And witness my power,


I’ll remove all obstacles

And make the path straight

The vision shall speak

It shall create,


I’ll tear down the walls

And slay the giants

But until then

Stop being defiant,


I need you to OBEY

And to recognize

That partial obedience

Is still compromise,


I am Sovereign

And do as I please

I bring presidents and kings

Down to their knees,


I am the Creator

Of heaven and earth

And I am He

That gave you birth,


I AM that I AM

And you must understand

That I hold your life

In the palms of my hand,


I know the plans

I have for you

But there is still

One thing you must do,


Give up your will

And be conformed

Let Christ come in

And be transformed,


Do that which is good

And pleasing in my sight

And I will gladly give you

Your heart’s delight,


OBEY my command

Be patience and wait

And in the fullness of time

You shall be great.
