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?
