These are the lyrics I wrote for the song “WAITING” from the musical version of Esther’s story, “SUCH A TIME AS THIS,” with music by Sarah Siegler. I think the words are indicative of times we all struggle through. Patience is so hard because we don’t like to wait for things to happen.
My God, you have placed me here for a reason.
I don’t know what it is.
I wish I knew your plan for me.
I know I should be patient,
but my mind is filled with fear.
I sit and wait and wonder why.
Why have you chosen ME to be in this place?
Am I the one who must make sure that your work is done?
I know that with you I can do anything.
I will always trust in you.
You are the God of my people.
Just help me to understand what you would have me do.
I’s hard to wait, Lord – it’s so hard to wait.
I give to you my all.
Use me as you will.
I trust in your direction for my life.
I know I am your instrument
and you will guide my way.
