Are You Waiting?

 Contentment is something that doesn't come easy for me, but it is something I need to cultivate.  I tend to be a "do it now and think about it later" kind of gal.  When I have to wait I get agitated and irritable.  However, I've noticed that I grow more when I have to wait.

Waiting forces me to depend on God in a way that I don't "have" to when everything is happening right on schedule.  As long as life keeps moving along I can get caught up in the next moment and forget to depend on the One who is allowing my every breath.

I also think the quiet waiting times are when I can best hear God's voice whispering to my heart.  There is nothing there to drown Him out. 

When you think about it our entire lives here on earth are essentially a waiting period before heaven.

How about you?  Are you waiting right now?
