Continuing in Lamentations...

"The Lord is my portion," says my soul,
therefore I will hope in him."
The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
~Lamentations 3:24-26

Notes from my ESV Study Bible:

wait for him - Not passive, listless sitting, but faithful serving until God acts.

wait quietly - In a posture of prayer and expectation.

There, in his Word, I once again find strength. The Truth penetrates the marrow of my bones, encouraging and equipping me to do the hard thing.
