Summary: Are you an impatient person? I know I am. Can we wait better? Today, if you're being told no, or it isn't working out, give it some time. Rather than getting impatient, let’s work on how we are operating as we wait.
Folks, I am a relatively impatient person. How are you when it comes to waiting and being patient? Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you're waiting. Over the years, as I've gained a few more gray hairs, I have learned to wait. I have been and continue to wait better. I want to allow the Providence of God to methodically move forward. He works all things after the counsel of His will.
Now there are several roadblocks in our lives. Roadblocks come in different forms. Some roadblocks are more like military roadblock with cement barriers, razor wire and multiple guards with guns. That's a roadblock that seems harder to move though. You may have to go down the road 45 miles and see if you can go around it that way. I get that.
But sometimes, a roadblock is nothing more than a stubborn donkey standing in your way. If given enough time, that crazy and stubborn donkey just might move itself. Waiting can be a wonderfully powerful strategic move. Not every roadblock demands digging a tunnel, building a bridge or driving 45 miles down the road to pass through that roadblock.
My first question: Are you an impatient person? I know I am. My second question: Can we wait better? And that's something that I am working on in my life. Today, if you're being told no, or it isn't working out, give it some time. Rather than getting impatient, let’s work on how we are operating as we wait.
