Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord. —Psalm 27:14

Strategic Withdrawal: any act you can devise, any psycho-spiritual act at all, that embodies a willingness to wait for the world to disclose itself to you, rather than to disclose yourself, your altruism, your creativity, skills, energy, ideas and (let’s face it) agenda, myopia, preconceptions, delusions, addictions, and inappropriate trajectories to the world. —David James Duncan, Strategic Withdrawal: Meditation

I give you my agenda, my preconceptions and pushed-for plans, and instead withdraw into a posture of willing waiting, where your will might be disclosed. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
