The waiting requires our patience and learning patience requires that we wait. It is the spinning of a holy circle with you and God together at the center; it is the creation of an upper room. You cannot postpone this waiting until you have nothing else to do. You must visit your holy space; you must ground yourself so all your other actions emerge from your deep heart’s core. If you are grounded in the holy, then the Creator’s promise can come to fullness in you and be expressed by you wherever you are.
