Joining the Five Minute Friday community of bloggers today with a one word prompt.
Good Things Come for Those Who Wait
Do you believe this? Probably not while you are waiting.
Waiting comes with maturing. How hard is it for children to wait? In one of the preschools where I worked, little four year olds waited in line for the restroom. Their teacher sang the cutest song with them: “Have patience, have patience.” Waiting when you are four years old and have to pee? Definitely not easy.
Children have to wait all the time – in school, in the car, at home and at each stage of development we hope to see their impulsivity and patience improve.
Teens wait for their next birthday, for recognition in sports, for a driver’s license, to graduate, leave home, a relationship, new friends. The list grows long.
But waiting as an adult can be agonizing — a diagnosis, a cure, answer to prayers, a new boss, a new job.
So today I suggest that you wait for one of God’s gift.
- these moments of waiting
- for days or years of waiting
- for the blessings that come from waiting on You.
