"...waiting [is done] in the condition wherein the soul is...Expectation and quietness make up waiting...the soul...looks upwards, 'as a servant that looks to the hands of his master,' still fixed on God, to see what he will do, to hear what he will speak concerning him; missing no season, no opportunity wherein any discovery of the will of God may be made to hiim. And this he doth in quietness, without repining or murmoring, turning all his complaints against himself and his own vileness, that hath cut him short from a participation of that fulness of love and grace which is with God."
