Such an astute observation on the di-chotomy of “walking the Christian Life”. We’re commanded to “Go and Make Disciples” and “Leave the Offering and Go be Reconciled to your brother” and yet we’re also commanded to “Be Still and Know I am God” and “They that Wait Upon the Lord will renew their strength”. The Apostle’s encouragement “To be Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak and Slow to become Angry”. belenced against “Be always ready to give an answer” I will pray as you wait for them to find compassion on you , that you will find the strength and means “To be Thankful in All Circumstances “. And that you will clearly see an end to your waiting and be able to once agian be doing.
