Hastening the day
Worldly mire and muck surround,
Darkness, hopelessness, oppression abound.
Our Inadequacies in all shapes and forms
Delaying what our hearts are yearning for.
God’s returning bringing heaven on earth.
The timing all about His created beings worth.
We who “gnosco” him desire to hasten the day
And yet the slowness in coming is His love on display.
Planned for ions ago before the fall,
Preciously poured out in offering for all,
The reconciliatory gift of blood.
Seeping into the darkest spaces,
Carrying the tide of hope to the remotest places,
We who wish for the Lords returning time,
We must in truth and in his righteousness march behind
Walking and growing in grace and holiness
Looking to the day when all knee’s bow and tongues confess.
2 Peter 3:9-12“ The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you,[a] not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
