Everyday I look up at the blue sky
and just wonder why
why, do I have to go through these things God?
I followed the sacraments and I read the bible
But I still don’t know where you’re leading me.
Will you come in if I open the door?
Will you answer my prayer and not hit ignore?
Yes or no?
Will my blessing come to me fast or slow?
How should I know?
When I talk to you how is it that you don’t make a sound?
But…I believe in you and you always come at the right time
Maybe that’s why I keep hoping because soon you might give me a sign.
When are times in your life where you have had to be patient? How has that challenged you and benefited you?
