When We Get Impatient


The drone of the lawnmower
Like a drill in my ear

I can’t even hear
My thoughts
Nagging, bragging
To be impatient
Brings pain
Is heaven shaking its head
To the things I have said?
In a moment I could scream
Release every drop of hot steam

I turn my face
To the most holy place
And just stare
I sense a team of angels there

The peace our brains do not understand
Flows freely
Above, below and in me


Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again: Rejoice! Let you gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:1-7).


Hallelujah! The Lord is near, even in our impatience. Feel free to share how this post moved you here in the comments.

  1. Powerful poem once again, Julie! Capturing how easily we get sidetracked with our own agendas and timelines. I love how you remind us to refocus on Christ and the peace flows. Ahh, I’m resting here with you! Blessings and love!
