Wait patiently, but not passively.

In this life, there will come different shades of tiredness. Some people will have minds that have grown tired.

For some, it will he their bodies.

For other, it’s the heart.

And then there will be some whose soul is tired.

These people didn’t get there overnight. These are the veterans of this life. The veterans of struggle, defeat. Loss. The veterans of tears and sleepless nights.

The veterans of prayer–but not the normal kind. The broken, desperate kind. The kind of prayer that can only come from a wounded heart.

To all those who are tired today, I can only ask you to look up to find the strength.

Wait patiently, but not passively.

Keep your eyes fixed. Don’t let the deceptive motions of this life distract you. Keep your eyes on God. Keep your heart fixed. On His work, His plan. And His mercy and support throughout it all.

Wait patiently, but not passively.

Watch His work, but don’t stop your own.

There is no better worship when you’re tired, then to keep fighting on.

You may think it doesn’t matter and nothing you do can make a difference. But remember, the seeds of an Oak don’t grow in a day.

  1. What a beautiful poem. There is something collective about the aspect of the Oak. In psychology, it points us to the ideal of the a-priori nature of a life unfolded. We are grounded by the Earth, yet yearn for the life giving force of the sky. With a little help, we reach towards the sun, with ever giving heights. Thank you for sharing.
