Growing up, I was one of the most impatient people on earth. I did not like waiting for ANYTHING. I always said, “Patience is a virtue that I was never born with.” I despised the waiting game.
Isn’t it ironic how the Lord has placed me on this committee to serve in my later years, for isn’t this what we constantly experience? A waiting game where we have to patiently persevere in lining up the “pieces” before we can progress forward. One thing I know for sure: God must have a great sense of humor because He always takes us in a full circle of learning, hoping we will master skills that we didn’t achieve in our younger years.
Shall we pray:
Lord, be with us through these periods of waiting. Give us the strength we need through these trials. May we always know that, according to Psalm 40, You do hear our cries. In all of this through You we pray, Amen.
