When in doubt, wait on the Lord

I had a whole post done when I realized I had no idea what I was trying to say....It seemed to be going in two different directions and I couldn't make up my mind which path to go down...kind of like one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost......So in lieu of my own words, here are some of his.
I am waiting on the Lord today, and waiting can be just the right thing sometimes.....

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


  1. Yes, Susan it is! No matter what is going on, God is good and here with us :-)

  2. That poem used to get some lively discussions in my classroom; unfortunately, it was never alluded to in terms of faith.

    What a great parallel --

    As I saw the title, I had that tune from the contemporary Christian song [Chris Tomlin] in my head:

    "Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord We will wait upon the Lord We will wait upon the Lord"

    That's twice recently that Chris Tomlin's beautiful lyrics have come to my head -- see my blog titled "Anna's Day."

  3. Will do Harriet...on my way! I love that song by Chris Tomlin :-)


Make my day, leave a comment!
