What's Yet to Come

What I am about to show you is a poem I wrote about two days ago.  A close friend of mine was having some fears about ever finding the perfect guy for her... the future husband that God wants her to choose.  She said that her worst fear was looking back at the age of fifty or sixty and thinking to herself, "What have I done?  I didn't choose the right guy, and I made a huge mistake."  I think all (or most) young people have this fear, and we often need a reminder that even when we are unsure of our futures, God is sure... He can see ahead, and He's watching out for us along the way. 

So Ali, this is for you.  :)

What's Yet to Come

I am thinking hard tonight,
As I look out at the stars.
I cannot help but think of you,
And wonder where you are.
It feels so strange that I am here,
And you may not be far. 

I often think about my future.
What if you aren't even there?
So many things are yet to come,
And I truthfully feel scared.
I'm afraid that you will walk on by,
And I will let you, unaware.

Every girl longs to be loved,
And cherished by someone-
The one that's meant for her alone.
My search has just begun.
I am afraid, but 'till you come,
Jesus is my only One.

  1. nice poem.
    I've been talking a lot about this questions with friends.
    And I came to the conclution, that we should give it to jesus and he will give you the partner - at the right time.

    I follow your videos since some weeks and i want you to know that you have been a great encouragement for me :)
