Then the LORD replied: "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. (Habakkuk 2:2-3)
And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. (Romans 5:2-5)
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! (Romans 5:9)
More than the watchman waits for the morning, Lord, I am yearning for Thee.
ps, a note for paranoid senny: this post is sooo totally not about you at all... except maybe the suffering you caused me for having a horrendous sore throat and being constantly accused of being unnaturally quiet... (which did quite piss me off eventually) :]
