S.D. Gordon ~ Quiet Talks on Prayer (he describes waiting)
Steadfastness, that is holding on;
patience, that is holding back;
expectancy, that is holding the face up;
obedience, that is holding one's self in readiness to go or do;
listening, that is holding quiet and still so as to hear.

"I was dying to talk to Jim and about Jim. But the things we feel most deeply we ought to learn to be silent about, at least untnil we have talked them over thoroughly with God."
~Elisabeth Elliot, Passion & Purity

"I do know that waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one's thoughts.
~Elisabeth Elliot, Passion & Purity

I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
~ Psalm 27:13-14
