“There are things to wait for patiently in faith, knowing that the Lord acts in his own time and in his own way.”
It is so hard for me to wait. I want my own timetable. I told my mom once, “I can be patient if I know how long I need to be patient for.” Which defeats the whole purpose of patience, really. We had a good laugh over that one.
I had a feeling that something should happen, and so I thought it would happen right away. But it didn’t. And I slowly realized that it may take years for this thing to happen. My timetable is sometimes more immediate than the Lord’s. His timetable and His way can seem slower.
But at other times in my life, the Lord’s time was much quicker than I expected. But His time and His way is always better than my time and my way. There are good things to wait for, and so I am waiting, without knowing how long it will take.
