Patient’s Reward

I’m a patient of Patience

and she won’t loose her grip. I’ll be glad when she’s released me. Cause this, has been a real trip.

So come and get me Reward! I’ve been

Sitting here in silence
Just waiting for your call
There’s nothing else to do
It seems I’ve done it all

I’ve prayed and then
Prayed some more
Read, listened to music
Even practiced my own score

I’ve weathered every storm
Passed every test
Even though I cried sometimes
I still tried my best

To complete each assignment
Obey your every word
Managed to mine my manners
And sit still till I heard

Your instructions, your guidance
I did truly take heed
Didn’t lean to my understanding
I allowed you to lead

Me in the way that I should go
The path that I should take
I think I’m a good student now
A good teacher I would make

I don’t know what’s left to do
But I hope you get here soon
I’ve made way for your arrival
See ya tomorrow, around noon?

  1. Your style is so unique compared to other people I have read
    stuff from. Many thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this web site.


  2. I’ve always been intrigued by the KJV of James 1:4…But let patience have “her” perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing…When I read this I always thought that patience should really appeal to men, because of “her!” JUST me, just saying!

    1. I hadn’t thought of “her” favoring towards men before. That’s a clever way of seeing it.
      You don’t know this but, this past summer I started a study on why the pronoun ‘her’ is used to reference patience and wisdom.
      Wow. You’ve broadened the scope of my search now with this piece about appealing to men. Hmm

    2. Also, this is the same scripture the Father gave me some 14 years ago when I started my journey through this process.
      This is confirmation that I’ve come full circle now.
      You’re a God send for sure in this season. At least for me you are.
