Waiting on God (by Joshua Harris)

"To wait is not merely to remain impassive.

It is to expect--to look for with patience, and also with submission.

It is to long for, but not impatiently; to look for, but not to fret at the delay;

to watch for, but not restlessly;

to feel that if he does not come, we will acquiesce, and yet to refuse to let the mind acquiesce in the feeling that he will not come."

- Dr. A.B. Davidson, Waiting on God (quoted in The Hidden Life of Prayer by David McIntyre)
