Nobody likes to talk about it. You hear grunts, groans and deep sighs when you mention it. Sometimes there is even anger. I'm talking about waiting. There, I said it.
In full transparency, I don't like to wait either. I like for things to happen quickly. However, as I have gotten older, I see the value and reward in waiting.
In the wait, depending on the circumstances:
The real "why" surfaces
The desire may change
The desired object may lose its appeal
Trust in the Lord is cultivated
Scripture tells us in Psalm 27:14, "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." When we get frustrated and consider giving up, the Lord will give us strength to wait. Remember, He sees all and knows all.
If you are waiting today, have courage! It may be uncomfortable but you are becoming pliable in the Master's hand. As we so often hear, "trust the process". What you have been waiting for will be better than what you expected and will be worth the wait!
