He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Then Sings My Soul Saturdays- They That Wait

This song puts a smile on my face and reminds me of the HOPE I have in the Lord. Hope I have for difficult circumstances I'm in now....hope I have for my hood, hope for broken families whose lives the Lord has placed us in. I love the bridge of this song that says:

" Wait on the Lord and He will come through, Wait on the Lord, He will answer you, Wait on the Lord, and He wont be long..."

I am waiting today(with HOPE) that the Lord hears and knows whats best.
I wait eagerly for my adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved.
I wait for the Lord to redeem my hood, it isn't a matter of IF, but when.. I BELIEVE that he will...
I wait for fathers to return to their homes and live out a portrait of biblical manhood..
I wait for girls to return to being little girls and not mothers...
I wait for the Lord to restore all that the locus have eaten...
I wait for the orphan to have a home...
I wait for justice to reign....
I wait for the time when EVERY knee shall bow and EVERY tongue shall confess that Jesus is LORD....
I wait for Christ return that shall bring all this and so much more to past...

Wait eagerly with me.....






Lyrics:
Chorus

They that wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength
They shall mount up on wings just like an eagle and soar
They shall run and not be weary
They shall walk and never faint
They that wait on the Lord
And I say wait on the Lord

Verse

Hold on a little while longer
Here's what you got to do
Trust and believe my friend
He'll work it out for you
One thing you must remember
My God is able and He cares for you
He cares for you

Bridge

Wait on the Lord and He will come through
Wait on the Lord He will answer you
Wait on the Lord and He won't be long
Wait on the Lord He's going to work for...

John's Verse

They that wait upon the Lord
Shall renew strength
They shall mount up on wings like eagles and soar
I'm so glad
I've learned how to wait
In the midst of my waiting
I will bless His name.
