It occurs to me that this is essentially a waiting time for me. What I need is patience, and trust, and I have never found those things easy.
Persevering in Christ’s teachings, by patience we participate in his sufferings, but we will also partake in his kingdom. Silence is a central foundation for such a life.
(No Moment Too Small: Rhythms of Silence, Prayer, and Holy Reading, Norvene Vest, Cowley Publications, 1994)
In returning and rest you shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.
