The Waiting Game

Extracted this from Elizabeth Elliot's book "Passion & Purity"...

Steadfastness, that is holding on;
Patience that is holding back;
Expectancy, that is holding the face up;
Obedience, that is holding one's self in readiness to go or do; listening, that is holding quiet and still to hear.

How long, Lord, must I wait?
Never mind, child. Trust me.
