it is hard for me, you know.

Waiting, I mean.  It can be so boring.

And challenging.

And useless.

And tiring.

And well, I think you get my drift.

What is it about waiting that makes it so HARD?  I suppose for me it is hard because I like control.  I like to manage things and be sure that everything happens on time, on plan, just like. I. like. it.

Oops…no one said I get to be in charge.  I don’t get to have things the way like or want them.  No, I don’t.

But I am learning as I get older that waiting has benefits.  Good things sometimes happen slowly.  That waiting isn’t all bad.  It can be challenging, but it isn’t necessarily boring, useless or tiring.  No it doesn’t have to be those things. 

It can be invigorating. 



These are the things that happen when I refocus and put my lens on Him.  When I remember that HE has a plan.  His ways are NOT my ways.  He put the sun, the moon, the stars, the oceans, rivers, seas, valleys and mountains in place and in motion. 

It wasn’t me.  It was HIM. 

He has a plan and it requires me to wait. 

And I am learning that waiting isn’t all bad.

Wait for the LORD;
   be strong and take heart
   and wait for the LORD.
Psalm 27:14

How about you…do you have trouble waiting?
