"as the eyes of a maid"

This morning I thought of these lines from psalm 123:

Behold, as the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maid
to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the LORD our God

That's the kind of waiting on God I was thinking of in the last entry. Waiting for the word or sign of what to do next, as well as waiting for the care and protection that comes from the Master we trust. A waiting not from a distance but close.
