God Is A Gentleman : "I Wait" by Alice Summers

Part of me is tempted to write a whole lot about this song, but on the other hand I think the lyrics communicate what I needed to say quite well. I have lived these lyrics, but I also wanted to keep it general enough so that anyone can relate.

In my experience, God doesn't force His will on us. He is the consummate gentleman, respecting the free will He created in us. But because of our experiences in this fallen world, we have forgotten that it's possible to trust completely and not be disappointed. 

Revelation 3:20 says,
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me.”
 
For as long as you remember,
you’ve always been the strong one.
Your facade might fool my children,
but I hear your inner longing,
And I wait for you.
You feel like you’ve been discarded;
like you’ve always been alone,
As if you were never wanted,
My beloved, don’t you know?
I wait for you
 
I wait, and catch every tear that falls
I wait; I know your struggle isn’t small
Fall apart in my arms and find your rest
In the center of your brokenness
 
For so long you’ve resisted ;
you barricade the walls
As if I’ve come to break you
just to prove that I am strong
But I wait for you
If you let me I will shatter
and remove the hidden things
And replace them with the healing
that is only found in Me
But I wait for you
 
Musically, I absolutely love how this turned out in the studio! I I think it may be the best one on the album. Agree/disagree? What other questions or comments do you have about this song?
