meet 'hindsfeet'

"But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say 'You are my God.'
My times are in Your hand"
-Psalm 31:14,15


The cliche "pregnant pause"
"bated breath"
and "deafening silence"
that presently pervade my path

are Cliche because these things are common to man
Cliche because they are the go-to tools of the Potter
the primary privations used to teach His timing
used to teach us Trust

And so I wait
And so I watch
And so I brace myself against voices
which flatter me into false starts
and premature emergence
which promise a counterfeit exodus
and countermand Christ's call to "Wait"

I endure the strain of stillness
And quiet myself to hear...

I know, in the end, "I shall see God"


* Job 19:23-26 *

Liz at Hindsfeet wrote this beautiful poem. She writes equally moving pieces almost daily over at her blog, Bird's Eye View. You could easily read her blog each morning or each evening to begin or end your day with a focus on Scripture and sound theology.

If you visit her, be sure to leave her a little "Hello" in the comments section. She's a fun, friendly young lady!
