My Purpose, God

My purpose God,
I don’t know.
I hope one day you show me.
Tell me, all this will be worth it.
Tell me,
I’m not wasting time.
This year has been tough.
It’s hard to sit and wait.
They all tell me DO something
I AM –
I’m listening to God.
No, DO something they say.
They say they are worried.
They think I’ve given up.
God is what I say.
I’m learning to trust God.
I question if I’ve lost it.
Been too long by myself?
Maybe they are right.
Am I making a mistake?
But I know we aren’t alone here.
Look at nature.
Look at us!
You can see that.
Is that not God?
It won’t last forever.
I’ve learned from situations past–
No, it won’t last forever.
Hard times never last.
This year has been tough.
It’s hard to sit and wait.
My purpose God,
I don’t know.
I hope one day you show me.
Tell me, all this will be worth it.
Tell me,
I’m not wasting time.
You say keep holding on.
Trust me.
Trust You.
So here I am,
That is what I’ll do.
