WAITING FOR ANSWERS
Waiting for answers to prayer,
Specifics of which we’re aware…
Waiting a week
Is tough as we speak,
The cupboard is nearly bare.
Over-drawn checks we paid
For with thirty dollars each, I’m afraid…
Payments came due
And we’re broke through,
From the Deacon’s Fund requested aid.
The previous pastor had a slush fund,
Which now must be moribund…
New system in place:
A week to face
Aa yes or no under the gun!
At our church they’ve rarely said no,
Waiting a week to find out troubles so…
Church friends say don’t worry,
I just know we’re buried–
Without gasoline to work I can’t go.
My wife always has claimed faith,
Two week’s tithe paid last week and we’re not safe…
Money management (my greed)
It may not succeed,
We still can’t agree on some things.
Oh how the Deceiver thrives
Putting doubt in our lives…
Making us deal
With our faithless side for real,
Not trusting in God for our lives.
“Help Thou my unbelief.”**(Mark 9:24)
Help us to await Thy relief…
We praise Thee now
For all Thou dost show,
Of provision for Thy servants we beseech!
