This week’s song is “You Found Me” by The Fray.  This song has been played a lot in the past few weeks. I have forgotten how much I enjoy it, let alone needed the reminder.   Every time I hear this song I have been in a different part of my life but it always speaks to me in the same way.

Where were you
When everything was falling apart?
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
That never rang
And all I needed was a call
That never came

Earlier, I was going through an old blog and came across an entry from 2005. I was in a transitional stage. I was 22 and there was a lot of uncertainty and disappointment in my life. I was trying to find myself and was inevitably falling apart.  I waited for a sign and nothing. I waited for a miracle that never came. Little did I know God was working seven years ago the way He’s working right now.

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lyin’ on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

As lost as I was it took a lot of silence, growing, and learning to get where I am now. There were times in the last seven years when I found myself asking, “Where are You God?” “Don’t You hear me screaming?” “Why aren’t You answering me?” Though I didn’t know it then, I know that He was always there.

Early morning
The city breaks
I’ve been callin’
For years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
Ya never send me no letters
You got some kinda nerve
Taking all I want

God knows what He is doing and while we may not always know, we can find satisfaction knowing that we have a relationship with the One who does. When God was [is] silent He was [is] developing the fruit of patience in me. I have learned to be patient through every trial and that is how I grow the most spiritually.

Just a little late
You found me, you found me
Why’d you have to wait?
To find me, to find me

God is never late and never delays.  He found me just in time.

He was waiting for me.
