June 20, Today’s thoughts — Dare to Wait

Second picking of squash!

Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21

When we are in doubt or difficulty,
when many voices urge this course or the other,
when prudence utters one and and faith another,
then let us be still,
hushing each intruder,
calming ourselves in the sacred hush of God;s presence;
let us lift up our nature into the pure light of His face,
eager only to know what God the Lord shall determine–
and ere long a very distinct impression will be made,
the unmistakable forth telling of His secret counsel.
. . . . . .
If you (I) will only get alone,
where the lights and shadows of earth cannot interfere
where human opinions fail to reach–
and if you (I) will dare to wait there silent and expectant,
though all around you insist on immediate decision or action–
the will of God will be made clear;
and you will have a new conception of God
a deeper insight into His nature and heart of love,
which shall be for yourself alone–
a rapturous experience,
to abide your precious perquisite forever,
the rich guerdon of those long waiting hours. David

Trust god for your day…Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

  1. I agree Leslie, it is hard sometimes to sit and wait for God to speak in the midst of the difficulties of life. But worth the effort.

    • Yes, it is the blessing we get from trusting.
