“…to wait there”

by | Mar 23, 2007 | Devotion, Faith, Jen

Being constant. Faithful in prayer. Expectant to see God’s answer.  Hearing no news of change.  But still praying.

 Any Carmichael

If I cannot catch “the sound of noise of rain” long before the rain falls,


and, going to some hilltop of the spirit,

as near to my God as I can,


Have not faith to wait there with my face between my knees,


though six times or sixty times I am told “there is nothing”


till at last “there arises a little cloud out of the sea,”


then I know nothing of Calvary love.

— by Amy Carmichael (“if,” 1938, see also I Kings 18:41)
