Stand and waitThey who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.—Isaiah 40.31.

I looked it up, and ‘wait for the Lord’ means exactly that: wait while nothing happens. This is a sort of apology for lack of activity recently. Just haven’t had much to say that’s worth more than muttering under my breath, and I’m waiting patiently till my strength is renewed. Like my brother in Christ John Milton:

God’s state ‘is kingly: thousands at his bidding speed, And post o’er land and ocean without rest; They also serve who only stand and wait.’
