After Daniel 8:18-27

He sees the vision,

he hears the explanation,

couched in almost

vague, disguised words,

but he understands 

the meaning. His mind

accepts what he hears

but his heart fails, 

his spirit overcome,

both by the revelation’s

substance and the revelation’s

form. His strength fails;

he sickens. After he

recovers, he does the only 

thing he knows to do;

he doesn’t sit and wait

for fulfillment, to wait

for the end, but to do

what he has been called

to do: go about his work,

go about his daily life.
