I have not been good at waiting. Being patient and waiting are two different things. Patience reflects the good attitude during the wait. Without patience, I can bulldoze through and make things happen. Today, I choose to wait.
I want it now. Everything is drive thru. You can get married in a drive thru and even accept Jesus. When we get what we want quickly, there is little appreciation. We spend time to weigh out it’s worth. It’s worthiness is in the waiting. It’s the attitude I keep during the wait. Try to remain optimistic.
I like to wait 3 days before making a decision. If it has the ability to alter my path, I can wait. It took Jesus three days to rise from the dead. A lot can happen in three days! Waiting can grow tiresome and make me weary in well doing, but I must not faint.
I wait while writing every Blog. God will show me a topic and I see the title. That always comes first, but it’s up to me and my patience in knowing what that title means. There are many avenues it could take. Choosing what I want to share is the hardest part. The page waits while I try to fill it.
To see how patient someone really is, sit them down in front of a computer with very slow Internet. Remember dial up?
I have learned less is more. A few weeks ago I thought the length of my Blog reflected the amount of words in my heart. Looking at this today, I realize it just took a lot of words to get around to what I really wanted to say. Weaving my way with words and edits. It’s acceptable to make me wait.
