Proverbs of a 37 yr old man

Wait for me. Lord, wait for me! I don't want to miss your holy presence pass me by! The opportunity to receive grace and mercy to be wasted. I keep stumbling over the same selfish sin every time and its slowing up my spiritual growth. Others are so far ahead of me, I feel like giving up. Yet, every morning I am alive you bid me to come to you. I see your throne of grace and your hands outstretched towards me. Lord if only I could just touch your robe then I know I can live this christian life. I feel in my spirit you saying to me, "Look how far you have come by faith? Look how far my love has brought you? Out of the darkness and inching closer and closer into my marvelous Light." Now I know Jesus why you call me to follow you. You call me so that I move forward in my faith and leave sin behind by my own free will. You do not force anyone by hand to yourself, only by the strong pull of the heart do people come to God. Yes, through the Holy Spirit speaking through scripture I have left behind the place of guilt, moving forward towards honest repentance. I see you closer more than ever before. Soon I will see you how you truly are face to face in all your glory. The LORD will wait for me. The sins I have been slowly crawling out of, Jesus is waiting for me. Though I feel sometimes the throne room of grace is far off in the distance. Like the father of the prodigal son, I see Jesus running towards me from far away to meet me where I am at. From his throne room he sees my faith arising! So lets keep coming to throne of Christ knowing we have the victory over sin. Thank you Jesus for waiting for me. You are patient because you want everyone to turn from sin and no one to be lost.
