For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. (Psalm 62:5, ESV)
When I have to wait, I am typically not silent about it.
I can find all kinds of ways to grumble and complain about the waiting. The line’s too long. The Musack is too annoying. I’m wasting time.
I am learning all the grumbling in the world will not make the wait shorter or more enjoyable.
Perhaps if I allow silence into my waiting…if I will quiet my mind, my heart, my spirit…I will hear another voice speaking and assuring me the process is the point.
PRAYER: God who dwells in silence and whispers, quiet me and speak so I can hear.
