Since waiting on the Lord is my present “job description” I found the following quote helpful and encouraging:

“While waiting upon God we should continue to gather good data, seek godly counsel, and even begin to take action. God often guides throughout the process as we seek His leadership. As we give God His rightful place in all things He has promised to share His private counsel with us. The Hebrew word sod found in Psalm 25:14 and Proverbs 3:32 can be translated “secret intimate counsel,” and it is for those who fear and seek the Lord.”
