Waiting Here For You
by: Chris Tomlin, Jessee Reeves, and Martin Smith

Sung by Christy Nockells

If faith can move the mountains
Let the Mountains move
We come with expectation
We're waiting here for You
I'm Waiting here for You

You're the Lord of all creation
And still You know my heart
The Author of salvation
You've Loved me from the start

Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Hallelujah

You are everything You promised
Your faithfulness is true
And we're Desperate for Your presence
All we need is You

Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We're singing, Hallelujah
We're singing, Hallelujah

I absolutely adore this song for so many reasons. It is a song that resonated in my soul during a very dark time in my life. A year after we moved to Ohio I wanted to get out so badly. I begged the Lord every.day throughout the day to move out of Ohio. It was a dark time for me in my marriage, my friendships, with my babies and our church. I would play this song on repeat and just cry out to Him telling Him I was waiting for Him to move us somewhere, anywhere. 

I love the progression of this song. A cry for God to move mountains, acknowledgement that He knows every part of our heart and hears our requests, a declaration that He is faithful, a confession that no matter what happens, we have all we need in Him and lastly a waiting in patient praise while singing hallelujah: God be praised right now, even though things aren’t how I want them. 

God’s timing was perfect. I couldn't see it then, but I see it a little bit clearer now. He kept us in Ohio for years after I started begging Him to move us to teach me. In those years I waited, He taught me infinitely about His love and faithfulness, His desire and ability to answer my prayers and His power to satisfy my soul. He became my very best friend. 

God has always had my good in mind, even when it didn’t feel like it. May I always remember the Lord’s faithfulness of the past. And in remembering, may my heart never cease to sing Hallelujah: My God be praised.

Sweet words and so well written. Love reading of how God has sanctified and is sanctifying you. You are spuring on your readers to draw near to our Great God; thank you! That verse at the end of your post was our heart cry while our oldest was hospitalized and underwent two brain surgeries four years ago. I just love that verse and long for it to be my song even in the mundane.
