I have all the patient to wait for what I want.
One of the essential paradoxes of Advent: that while we wait for God, we are with God all along ,that while we need to be reassured of God’s arrival, or the arrival of our homecoming, we are already at home. While we wait, we have to trust, to have faith, but it is God’s grace that gives us that faith. As with all spiritual knowledge, two things are true, and equally true, at once. The mind can’t grasp paradox; it is the knowledge of the soul.
I will wait for God’s promises to be fulfilled in my life.
The iris on its tall stem: neither seeking nor waiting.
Waiting is one of the things that human beings cannot do well, though it is one of the essential things we must do successfully if we are to know happiness. We are impatient for the future and try to craft it with our own powers, but the future will come as it comes and will not be hurried.
I searched everywhere for love.
I knocked on every door
and turned over every stone.
But it was only until I returned home
that I found love
waiting for me.
Wait and wait. Most people’s lives are spent waiting.
One is in ‘Waiting’
Even after it’s over
Grief comes to stay
Never up for closure
There is no escape ever
One is always yearning
Grief envelops those
Left behind in ‘waiting’
‘Staying stuck’ in pain
Hiding deep in the heart
‘Let go’ ! Yes, but how
To make a new start
One has to live in the
Dark blind ‘Black-hole’
Until Light would grace
Rekindling a ‘Whole’
Waiting, he thought, was the most miserable condition a man could find himself in. His whole life, he had been waiting for one thing or another.
JACK: I will be back in a few moments, dear Canon. Gwendolen! Wait here for me!
GWENDOLEN: If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life.
