On Wings Like Eagles

by Benjamin Graber  
12/08/2006 / Poetry

We hate to wait,
Frustrated at the merest waste
Of time; forgetting that a second
Of mere appreciation is worth
A thousand spent in frantic haste

We hate to wait,
And seek fulfillment of our dreams
This very moment, naming love
The zenith of our selfishness,
Not fathoming what patience means

But we must wait
To rush into the plans weve made
Is often to abandon Christ
As He is forging greater dreams
We would have seen if we had stayed

Yes, we must wait,
Accepting patiences delays
We must not leap into the dark
Or even take a step ahead
Unless its love that shows the way

And if we wait
The Spirit shows us what to do,
Illuminates the path for us,
Revealing His amazing plans:
His dreams, now ours, are coming true

Well mount on wings like eagles
And soar like condors in the sky
What more could we desire on earth?
We rise in heights of love and joy;
Tis Gods own hand that makes us fly

My greatest desire as a poet is to inspire the reader to follow Christ more closely, love more deeply, or experience joy more fully.
