His Promise


His Promise

Head bowed, body bent

Every bit of fight in me spent

Dreams tormenting my soul

Tears begin to roll

As I whisper … God… my lips start to quiver

Do you remember

You promised no more than I could bear

No more than I could bear

Here I am appearing ungrateful

So many say this is what they wait for

For me, this life is not enough

More is a must

I can’t stand the ordinary of just being

God you must have created me for more than I am seeing.

You promised no more than I could bear

No more than I could bear

So, Father please speak to me

Are my dreams not meant to be

Or is it that I am not ready

I keep saying be patient and hold steady

I worry how patient I should be

Maybe you’ve forgotten your promise to me

No more than I could bear

I hope you are listening to my prayer

And remember your promise of no more than I can bear

Because right now I feel I am almost there

That moment before I break and out of air

  1. Ah…but he knows so much better then we do what we are capable of. He never doubts us the way we do him. Wonderful pen, Percy…as always, and a struggle that so many of us share. If not for the trials and tribulations that build and strengthen our characters…what poetry would we write?

  2. This is beautiful. Sometimes it’s hard to wait for God’s time. We want things immediately… but He has the bigger picture. What He has in store for us is so much more than we could ever dream of.
