How Long Lord?

Psalm 13

1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?


3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.


5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.


How long must I wait in the desert until I get into the promised land? How long must I walk through the valley until I see the light over the mountaintop? I feel overwhelmed, Lor, and like I am getting behind. I know your timeline is not mine, but I feel as if I don't have much longer, So I ask, how long, Lord?  Then I realized I must take it all as preparation and make the most of that time.  Other people's journey is not mine.
