For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.
I love a sunset in the mountains. Since I have lived close to mountains all my life, they have come to symbolize steadfastness and endurance for me. We got to the spot where I thought I could get a good sunset and we waited. I have found that photography involves a lot of waiting - for the right time of day, for the wind to stop blowing, for the sun to get in just the right place in the sky, for the fog to move in or out, and for the people to move into or out of the frame.
While waiting for a sunset doesn’t always yield results, waiting on God always does. It is hard to wait for anything in our instant gratification culture, much less to wait in silence. This is something that we need to learn, to cultivate, for it is only when we are silent that we hear God, the source of our hope.
My Rock and Salvation,
Teach me to wait in silence for your voice. Open my ears to your words and my eyes to your beauty.
