He Surprised Me at Midnight
When in my youth, I held un-trained thoughts about God…and where His glory is seen. I felt He dwelled in the moments of worship & honor but “left” in the times in-between. Oh, little did I know…for it took time to grow while God patiently and fully revealed, That He was there in my afflictions…showing His mercy whether or not I was healed. He was there in my distress, to show I was blessed in the pain that so many never knew. But He bonded me to Him and put me back together and now I’m stuck on His glory like glue. He was there in my failures when I was so fragile and disappointed at what came to be; For He wiped all the tears that reminded me I’m human and need a Savior for each day I see. He was there in the shortages, when my needs were bigger than all the resources found in my home. For in faith I cried out and my Father delivered to show the power that only He owns. Though I saw God and sought Him in the daylight hours with great stories of His marvelous ways, He surprised me at midnight, so I worshiped in darkness at my great Sovereign King on display.
