Slow Your Roll – Those Who Wait Upon The LORD

Slow Your Roll

(Those who wait upon The Lord)

Slow Your Roll


 All powerful God and Lord

Have your way within this soul

It is for You I live and breathe

Yes Sir I will slow my roll


 When The Lord begins to move

In and on a doubters heart

Many a scoffer has been changed

And given a brand new start



 With words like do you believe

Believe in what they may say

Believing is beginner’s faith

Has changed many a dark day



 Just look up and you will see

The sun the moon the stars

And realize what never changes

Is out of mans reach and seems so far



Far away yet clearly visible

Causing us to look creating this hunger

Who on earth created the cosmos

And You just know

couldn’t have been a Big Bang blunder



 Like your breath and beating hearts

These oft overlooked life giving elements

In unison without our agreement

Tucked away in His care, the relevant





No we do not choose Him

He looked and began to move

Upon the hearts He created

Beating to His wonderful groove



All powerful God and Lord

Have your way within this soul

It is for You I live and breathe

Yes Sir I will slow my roll

 Isaiah 40:31

But those that wait upon The Lord

Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint.



John 15:16 Weymouth New Testament

It is not you who chose me, but it is I who chose you and appointed you that you might go and be fruitful and that your fruit might remain; so that whatever petition you present to the Father in my name He may give you.


 This morning after writing this poem, I couldn’t help but think about new terminology and phrases. When The Lord gave me the last line, I realized God is always reaching out to each of us. And I know that The Lord Jesus Christ is cool, cooler than we can know. He is Holy and He is cool.

We know that we will be without excuse when we stand before Him, so therefore, He is reaching out to us, if we slow our roll. I had to go see exactly the meaning of the phrase, ‘slow your roll’. I trust God but I wasn’t exactly sure about ‘Slow Your Roll’ and the meaning. I felt sure I understood but also I have learned to search it out.

When we don’t know or understand ourselves we have a tendency to think or believe, God, doesn’t or wouldn’t understand us at all. He created us how could He not understand us.

The truth is His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. Thank goodness for that. He is Holy and calls us to come out from among the world and the ways of the world.

 Isaiah 55:8 The Lord tells us through His prophet Isaiah; “for My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says The a Lord.



When writing this poem the last stanza and line just flowed. When God begins to move upon your heart He will speak your language. Jesus will speak our language to engage us but He expects us to hunger for His ways and to learn what pleases Him.


The truth is, you may not understand or be aware of exactly how Cool God is.


Like Greg shared, there ain’t no high like The Most High!


God is cool enough to create you, right?

So with that being said I’d like to leave you with this thought;

Have you not known?

Have you not heard?

The Everlasting God, The LORD,

The Creator of the ends of the earth,

Neither faints nor is weary.

His understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 49:28


I challenge you to go read the rest of it.


God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you Shalom

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
