"But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say 'You are my God.'
My times are in Your hand"
The cliche "pregnant pause"
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 *
