Waiting, longing, expectantly hoping for the king
To come in power.
Walking, loving, dependently living by His grace
Every day and every hour.
King of love
Lord of life
I am waiting for you Lord
For when you come
All knees will bow
And acknowledge you as Lord
So I wait
Your return as Lord and Judge
Keep me strong
Bring me home
Keep me faithful till you return
He came, He gave his life for many when He died
And took away their sins
He’ll come and He’ll judge, the dead and living but give life,
To those are waiting
Fill me, with your, resurrection power, strengthen me,
To live a holy life
So on that last day, I will be waiting confident
The last track in the Journey project. Waiting. Any journey comes to an end. The journey of the Christian believer will end one of two ways. Either we will die and go into the presence of the Lord Jesus for eternity or the Lord Jesus will return as Lord and Judge before then and take us to be with Himself as He has promised.
This song focuses on the fact that the Lord Jesus could return at any time. As we continue on our journey it is right to expect that He will do just that and right that we depend on Him for help so that we unashamed when we he does return. "And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming." 1 John 2:28
I want to thank everyone who has helped with this project. Dan Went and Dave Brady for their drumming, Yannick Leroy for playing flute, Andy Downe for helping with piano and keyboards, Charles DeBurg for the solo on "Counted as one who is clean", Adam from Istanbul for helping with piano on "Waiting".
Faith is a journey. Faith in Christ is a walk with God that takes the believer along many different roads. A call to start the journey through the message of the Gospel, a response of faith in the One who died on the cross. A journey of joy, love, peace, but at times suffering and trials. Battles with sin and Satan, but always grace to keep us strong and to bring us to our Journey's end; to be with the One who called us to start walking in faith.
