The answers that gently reveal themselves to us on their own terms have a different quality than the ones we hungrily hunt down and skewer on a fixed timeline. So we are asked to settle in, ask for guidance, listen, watch and wait. To practice heroic feats of patience, trust, faith. Maybe, sometimes, not taking action can be the most noble action of all.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
-Psalm 32:8 ESV
i’ll fall on my knees
tell me how’s the way to be
tell me how’s the way to go
tell me all that i should know
tell me how’s the way to see
show me all that i could be
-selected lyrics from “Everywhere I Go” sung by Lissie
Faith is the compass that points the way.
