I had an opportunity to return to the site of The Daily Lily Retreat ’09 for a couple of days this week. As I was out moving around the grounds and doing one of the things I like to do best, some landscape work, my eye was drawn to a new landscape feature, a garden bench, that was newly purchased by MG, one of our faithful intercessors. Situated under a small open wooden structure upon which grows wisteria, I knew it was an outdoor altar and I felt the Lord say to me come and pray awhile. I couldn’t even sit on it at first, I just wanted to kneel on the rawness of the ground and lean in the ‘arms’ of its curved form. On the top of it is written an inscription, “Be Still and Know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)


I caressed each word as the tears flowed and I cried out to the Lord for urgent troubles and needs of some persons that I know that need healing. I clung to that bench like onto the horns of the altar, believing one of the many promises we had searched out in Sara’s book, “Dressing for His Glory, Lesson 6 Clouds of Rain Bring Showers of Blessing” when we examined Psalm 34. (pg 34) This poor man cried out and the Lord heard him and delivered him out of all his troubles (vs 6 & 17).
I then sat on the bench, waiting and felt enclosed in God’s room. I started to sing some of one of Sara’s songs, “My Waiting Room”…
“There’s a waiting in My room, there’s a waiting in My room, there’s a waiting, waiting in My room. As I wait I see His face shining as a glory of grace, as I wait as I wait in His room.
In His room there’s fire and power for cleansing of my soul as I wait, as I wait in His room. In His room there’s no fear, doubt or strife or unbelief that is why I must wait in His room.
There is praise and much worship as I wait in His room, as I wait, as I wait in His room. It has set the captives free opened eyes of many to see; now I know the power of waiting in His room.
I can see I can see in the world as I go as His light has broken forth in my soul. Oh I waited in His room and the victory has been won, that is why I must wait in His room.” © Sara
As I sat talking to the Lord, a gentle breeze blowing, this scripture came to mind and the song that contains it, “As the mountains are around Jerusalem, so the Lord is all around His people. As the mountains are around Jerusalem so the Lord is all around His people. From this time (day) forth and forevermore…so the Lord is all around His people.” (Psalm 125:2
