The North Face : Waiting

"Weeping may last through the night, "the psalmist writes, "but joy comes with the morning." (Psalm 30:5)

Which raises the question we all want answered.

How do we get to the morning, to the sunshine, to the joy?

There is only one way.

By waiting for it. We can't hurry the dawn, no matter how anxiously we pace the floor or how impatiently we watch the clock. And so the question is not do we wait or not wait, because waiting is all we can do. The question is, How will we wait? Will we wait well...or will we wait poorly?

Although we can't choose how long we will wait in the darkness, we can choose how well we will wait.

~The Northface of God, pg 99
