God waits for our reaction. He watches how we handle the adversity,
whether we handle it with love and self sacrifice,
or chose darker, destructive emotions.
Regardless of the fact that we may want to scream and shout
Regardless of the fact that we may want to break down and cry
He watches for our reaction
He hopes beyond hope that we are patient
That our patience knows no bounds
He BANKS on us, hoping we are loving and compassionate
He BETS on us, hoping we are caring, accepting and understanding.
He HEDGES that we endure our suffering with dignity and grace.
And whatever will be, will be for our good and for the good of all.
