How long will this moment last? Only God knows

I often ask myself the question, "I wonder what God thinks about this?" The "this" is in reference to whatever daily dilemma comes my way. Most people say they believe in God and most people own a Bible. My question is: Do they believe God; do they take Him at His word?

My mother called me from her home in Seattle and shared this scripture:

"Come my people; enter into thy chambers and shut thy doors about thee. Hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be past." (Isaiah 26:20)

How long is a little moment? God only knows. It's enough time to make me press on and keep believing.
