SONG: "In the Waiting"

The “in-betweens” of life can be difficult and challenging... I wrote this song inspired by various seasons of waiting and the importance of faith and patience, along with the reality of doubt and despair — as well as a couple of Instagram posts from friends that I admire. I hope you can check it out and connect with it on a personal level. Thanks! All of your support and encouragement means the world to me. I’d love it if you’d share this on your social feeds 😊😊

“IN THE WAITING” by Anson Sexton

For You know the plans You have
But sometimes it’s hard for me to understand 
Oh I struggle to find my way
When hardly anything around me seems okay
(Oh hardly anything around me seems okay)

Oh in the waiting, my anxiety runs wild
In the waiting, all I want to do is hide
But in the waiting is where Your promises remain
So in the waiting, I’ll hold on to every word You say

Oh, You see my every doubt
And it’s hard for me to make sense of it now
For You’re aware of all my fears
You know everything about me, yet You’re still right here
(Oh You know everything about me, yet You’re still right here)

Oh in the waiting, my anxiety runs wild
In the waiting, all I want to do is hide
But in the waiting is where Your promises remain
So in the waiting, I’ll hold on to every word You say

Like, You love me and You care
You won’t forsake me and You’re always there
To give me a future and offer hope
You wrap Your arms of love around me
And You won’t let go
