"Wait patiently on God"

Waiting often indicates some kind of delay. One might spend his life waiting for the right position to open up for him or for the right home or the right person to appear. On some occasions a protracted healing may so influence one as to make him believe he is waiting for health. What is he doing while he is waiting? Is he thinking, "Just as soon as that which I'm waiting for appears, then I'll be happy, busy, satisfied, healthy, or complete"?

Mrs. Eddy writes, "When we wait patiently on God and seek Truth righteously, He directs our path." Science and Health, p. 254; This kind of waiting has no vacuum. Waiting "patiently on God" is the opposite of waiting impatiently for material things, persons, or physical healings. "When we wait patiently on God and seek Truth righteously," we are far from inactive. We are energetically moving in the right direction.
