Isaiah 40:31 (GNTD) But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.
One of the most difficult things for any of us to do is to wait. We live in a culture where waiting feels consuming and makes us upset. The problem with not waiting is that we can miss our blessings. Waiting is a form of discipline, it shows our strength and our resilience. Learning to wait, applies to many areas of our lives. Imagine all the wasted relationships that we could have avoided if we would have waited for the right person. When we learn to wait, God favors us for it. Waiting is a skill that we have to become proficient at to succeed in life and to gain all that God has to offer us.
The problem with waiting, is that it’s not easy to do. We become restless and give up too quickly. We fall short of all the things that we could have received, because we walk away too soon. This week, slow down and find the moments that require your patience and practice the process of waiting.
“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”
Fulton J. Sheen
