Strength and Waiting

Cast yourself into the arms of God and be very sure that if He wantsanything of you, He will fit you for the work and give you strength.

Those who are waiting are waiting very actively. They know that whatthey are waiting for is growing from the ground on which they arestanding. That’s the secret. The secret of waiting is the faith thatthe seed has been planted, that something has begun. Active waitingmeans to be present fully to the moment, in the conviction thatsomething is happening where you are and that you want to be present toit. A waiting person is someone who is present to the moment, whobelieves that this moment is The Moment. -Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade
