And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
No matter how much we may not like it, waiting is a part of life. I certainly learned that lesson in the military. In order to learn to succeed in life you have to learn the art of patience and trying to not rush things. Sometimes rushing into things has disastrous consequences. It is necessary to be wise and to use good judgement and of course to pray. Waiting for fast food, waiting for rides at an amusement park, waiting in traffic, waiting at the doctor office. There are many scenarios where patience is required.
Sometimes in life 'doors' may be shut and we become discouraged. A certain job does not come through only to find out that down the road there was a better one waiting. Learning to wait is a valuable asset in life. It teaches you to be calm, cool, and collected and all of us could certainly benefit from that, right? In our case one 'ideal' assignment in the military may not come through only to find out a much better one awaited us.
Basically, trust God to guide you in life and try to be still. Try to practice waiting with small tasks so you will be able to master this when a giant hurdle awaits you.
PRAYER: I for sure need to have more patience. Guide me through times Lord when I feel like wanting something instant. Give me the ability to have peace and stillness. In Jesus' name. Amen.
