Ah, my Father it is difficult to wait
For the house we are building to be finished
But so much more for those I love
To come to Your gate
And ask Jesus to be their Lord.
Sometimes the desert
Would turn to windswept years
Were it not
For the indestructible sterling thread
Of the love of Your promise:
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
And you shall be saved
And all Your household."
Lord, may I enlarge my house
So there's a room for not only Dad and Tom
But also Paula's room and Ed's and John's
And many numbers more.
I would to build a mansion
For my "household" to be saved
By my loving faithful Lord Jesus.
I pray. I hope. I trust. I cling.
I BELIEVE!!! Thank You, Father.
