Wait, Israel, for God. Wait with hope. Hope now; hope always! Psalm 131:3 (MSG)
Waiting is a character-producing activity. Even calling the task of waiting an activity seems oxymoronic. Waiting feels like doing nothing. Waiting feels like wasted time.
Still, I'm reminded by the lyrics of today's chapter that my waiting is not void of direction, purpose or activity. I'm to learn contentment as I cool it. I'm to hope while I'm on hold.
[sigh] Man, waiting is hard work.
