Waiting on the World to Change

Refugees. Drought. Starving children. War. Terrorism. To be sure, we are waiting on the world to change. We wait in prayer. We wait with hope. We wait, rolling up our sleeves to do our part. Positive change does not just happen. It requires our best efforts, our highest resolve and our holiest prayers.

I do love the lyrics of the song performed by John Mayer, “Waiting on the World to Change.”

Now we see everything that’s going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don’t have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It’s hard to beat the system
When we’re standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That’s why we’re waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

The song lyrics state the problem but don’t offer the solution. One thing is for sure, change happens when we summon the will to create it. I again repeat this: It will require our best efforts, our highest resolve and our holiest prayers. Let’s get started . . . together.
