I hate waiting! I know, I know, patience is a virtue, but I still hate waiting. One place I really hate waiting is in a doctors office. We’ve all been there. You call the doctors office, they give you an appointment time, you get there and wait. And wait. And wait some more! They finally call you to the back and they put you in a tiny room to wait again! I always think “You are the ones that told me what time to be here! Why am I having to wait?” The older I get the more I realize that all of life is a waiting room. When you’re little you can’t wait to get to school, then you can’t wait to graduate, then you can’t wait for college, then work, and so on it goes. All of our lives we find ourselves waiting on something, and like the psalmist, we find ourselves asking the question, “how long O’ Lord?” Life is made up seasons, though.
There’s something to learn and something to gain from every season in life.
You can spend each season just waiting for the next, but why not just enjoy the room you’re in now?
Prayer: God, give me patience in every season of life. Help me to always remember that your timing is perfect. Let me be someone that enjoys every season I am in.
