It’s so easy to get caught up in the rush and hustle of life. However, there are times when we are forced to wait. No matter how we try to avoid them, waiting times are just a part of life.
It seems like I’m always waiting on something. Whether it’s something small like the laundry to finish in the dryer or something with bigger implications such as waiting for God to answer a prayer, I’m often forced to wait.
Waiting can be a good thing. It can help us to slow down and escape the hurry life brings.
Waiting can be hard, though. Especially if you are waiting on an answer or event that could possibly change your life.
In times of waiting, I try to recall God’s Word and use it to bring me comfort and patience while I wait.
