the need for speed, ingenuity, class, brilliance.

But most hearts say, I want, I want,
I want, I want. My heart
is more duplicitous,
though no twin as I once thought.
It says, I want, I don’t want, I
want, and then a pause.

Margaret Atwood, from “The Woman Who Could Not Live With Her Faulty Heart”, in Two-Headed Poems (via hiddenshores)

Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don’t. You are in good company. You are in the pit with King David. He waited. ‘I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction’ (Ps. 40:1–2). God will do that for you. You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.

—John Piper
