I Don'T Want To Wait For My Life To Be Over

Poem By Laura Hull

I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To hear Your voice speaking to me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To feel You here, Your Spirit touching me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To run with you, through the harvest fields of gold...

My life is not worth the living,
Lord if You are not here in me.
I got to walk with you over mountains
And follow You through the valleys.
The deserts are so lonely and barren
But I can cross them by leaning on my Beloved.
So take me into your nail stained arms,
Blind me if You have to.
Because I refuse to allow distractions
To steal the joy I have in abiding with You.

I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To hear voice speaking to me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To feel You here, Your Spirit touching me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To run with You through harvest fields of gold...

The darkness around scares me
I fall to the ground, I am broken.
My passions for the future are shaken.
My visions are non-visual.
I am crying out to my Beloved,
Come and save me.
Because I know that it is not in the wind,
And not in the earthquake, not in the fire,
But in the gentle whisper.

Day by day you call to me,
Day by day I fail to perceive.
The depths of your love,
The strength of your plan.

Enemy forces rage war against my soul.
I am outnumbered and the battle is out of control.
Whom am I in this battleground?
I am small and feel useless,
But inside can there be found,
A vision fulfilled by the power of your will?

I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To hear Your voice speaking to me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To feel you here, Your Spirit touching me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To run with you through harvest fields of gold...

I have felt you near in days gone past
Your presence was almighty.
The dew of the fields filled my heart,
As you opened me to Your Spirit.
But I am crossing through the scariest place,
A dessert so destitute and forsaken
Has your glory left this dessert?
Is there a withdrawal from this place?

Where can I go from your presence?
Wherever I am you are with me.
In the morning when I rise,
In the day as I tread,
In the evening as I rest,
In the night as I lay on my bed.
You are constantly there.
Calling me closer and I am constantly struggling with my fear.
My fear of the future.. Will you abandon me?
Will you reject me? Are you angry with me?
But these thoughts are foreign from your disposition.
For I can never flee from your presence.
You are constantly there.
And it's this love sickness thats meant to consume me,
To cause me to run after you.
Cause you want to reveal yourself,
To the seeking,
And you faithfully feed the hungry.
So I find rest in this struggle,
As you renew my strength with your love.

I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To hear voice speaking to me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To feel you here, Your Spirit touching me.
I don't want to wait for my life to be over...
To run with you through harvest fields of gold...

As I call You, You come and carry me.
You come and lift me up in a King's chariot so mighty.
I ride across the valley, I climb across the hills,
I am taken even further, until all is still.
You have led me to the mountains,
The high places in the spirit,
So even on earth- my spirit can find
the power of your magnificent presence Almighty.
You draw me near, You take me here,
You heal my wounds, and speak to me.
You show me- everything I need to see.
And renew my vision,
so that I can soar Like an eagle.
over the raging sea.
You lift me up so that I can see,
Your morning star eyes,
Your tender stare,
Your constant gaze,
Your gentle care.
Oh Shepherd King, Oh mighty Lord,
I love you more and it's You I truly adore.

I don't have to wait for my life to be over,
To hear voice, To speak to You, To hear You call my name.
For I know Your love covers me,
When I lift my eyes to the skies,
Your grace flows and then I know,
I'm set free from the fear of death,
From the fear of pain and abandonment,
I'm set free, to love Thee,
To follow Your ways, always.
I'm set free, I'm set free,
And now I don't have to wait for my life to be over,
To feel Your love, resting here within me.

Just Trust Him

Just trust Him when you can't see,
Just trust Him and believe
For He is with you through your shadows of doubt.
He is with you and will bring you out.

Troubled times turn to peace
As I embrace internally
The call of love,
The call from above.

Wings Of Hope

I have faith for impossibilities. Because I know your love is drawing me.
Not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of the Lord.
It's calling me to face fears, calling me to perfect love,
Calling me to follow the path and find love that will truly last.

The Fallen Rose

The rose has fallen down on the ground-
Waiting to find a hand
To pick me up and place me somewhere beautiful.

The Cry Of The Prisoner And The Vision

Simply to see You and to hear Your voice-
That's what I am longing to do.
To listen to the words that you say
And to see the light in your eyes that brightens my day.
