Turning Life’s Page

Living on hidden island

Searching through another day

Overwhelming heartache

Waiting, filled with emptiness


Whispering thoughts, every night

Hearing silence once again

Tears drowning in sorrow

Waiting for new direction


Making one more decision

Holding torch, ready to light

Prepared to burn last bridge

Waiting to strike final match


Listening again, a voice

Growing stronger each minute

Conscience stirs from abyss

Waiting, no longer needed


Turning life’s page, new chapter

Leaving island at long last

Light leads to happiness

Revealing brilliant sunrise

Martha Williamson Quote

Never forget, when you have lost your faith, when God is no longer real to you–go back.  Go back to the last place you saw Him.  He will be waiting for you there.

From Isaiah 30:18:  “Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show mercy to you.  For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.”

Martha Williamson is a television producer, who is best known for her contributions as the head writer and executive producer of the award-winning television series, “Touched by an Angel.”

Monday Memories: Waiting for a Call

Waiting for its urgent call

Winter’s snow waiting to strike

Where is winter hosting fun?

Playing games in the Klondike


School children watch outside

Dreaming of a snow day soon

School’s steady beat marches on

Soon, everyone sings a new tune


Weather forecast predicts snow

Snowplows prepare for battle

But, this storm slides to the north

Hmm, snow dumps on Seattle!


Outside, waiting for a call

Snow shovel dreams of snowfall

Hope’s Flame

Hearing hope-filled words

Again and again


Different story

Always same message


Better tomorrow’s

Waiting in the wings


Whatever issue

Life’s hollow words sting


Today’s hope searching

Empty souls stare out


Yesterday shattered

Future dreams snuffed out


Confidence shaken

Sunrise uncertain


Starving for action

Grieving voices weep


Life struggles onward

Energy waning


From smallest ember

Hope’s flame still glowing

God has a plan for us, mysterious though it may seem, and we want to be in the center of it.  All the risks notwithstanding, the center of God’s will is still the safest place on earth to be.

From Psalm 130:6:  “My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.”

Alexander Maclaren Quote

If God sends us on stony paths, He will provide us with strong shoes.

From Isaiah 40:31:  “But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
