Waiting on God
Whenever you can, take a few minutes of just waiting on Jesus,-------- not necessarily praying but just waiting, looking into His face, desiring His presence. At first you may not seem to receive much; but if you take every opportunity, presently your soul will hunger for Him and the sweetness of Himself will come to you, and you will get like lovers, rather slip away with Him just for a minute or two than to talk, or read, or rest, or eat. And when you are tired, or rushed, or nervous, a few minutes with Him, in the stillness of His presence will rest you more than anything in the world.
If we looked at Jesus more, and ourselves, and our friends, and our trails, and our failures, and conditions of life, and the world, the flesh, and the devil less, we would reflect His image more and more; and the hardness and impurity, and temper, and selfishness would fade away, and tenderness, and purity, and gentleness, and love would take their places---- changing from glory to glory.
"But we all with unveiled face---- reflecting as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory." II Cor.3:18(R.V.)
