Waiting Without Reason

Charles Edward York 1966 (Saigon, Vietnam)



Waiting Without Reason

Waiting without reason means
Something good is on its way soon
Timing happens regardless of schedule
Attuned to our control
Justice, opportunity and deliverance
Always occurs on time
When we get out of the way.

Being the master of the moment
Bears no resemblance to circumstances
Materials or our own power
Patience and response are needed
Our willingness to allow
The Divine connection to flourish
And flow through us all the way.

The mirror of our lives reflects
All we hold most dear and believe
We adapt and change
In order to survive and succeed
There is no barrier in your life
Past, present or impassable
When your future is in His hands.
