Within the bounds of Patience,

is an Ocean holding you.

Within the waters of Patience is a peaceful current that,

without even trying,

has a will bent on carrying you to the next thing.

Within the bounds of patience,

hope,

not despair, is found.

Patience.

When we find ourselves standing in this mysterious space;

remember it is one that holds,

rather than breaks,

the promises made out to you.

Patience sees.

It sees beyond what our eyes can now see,

beyond what our hands can now reach.

Perhaps in the call to be patient,

we are also invited to quit fighting our dashed hopes,

and instead yield,

to the waters that know.

The waters that know,

without a shadow of a doubt,

the way you will go.

“Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.” Rom 8:26-28 MSG
