I waited patiently for the Lord.
Must life be considered a failure for someone com-
pelled to stand still, forced into inaction and required
to watch the great, roaring tides of life from shore?
No--victory is then to be won by standing still and
quietly waiting. Yet this is a thousand times harder
to do than in the past, when you rushed headlong in-
to the busyness of life. It requires much more cour-
age to stand and wait and still not lose heart or lose
hope, to submit to the will of God, to give up oppor-
unities for work and leave honors to others, and to
be quiet, confident and rejoicing while the busy mil-
tiptoed goes happily along their way. JR Miller

"after you have done everything, to stand."
