Patience. The word that you undoubtedly don't want to hear when a long awaited desire has yet more time to blossom. The idea of planting appears to be very serene. And it is for those who don't mind waiting through the process. But to a person with very little patience or who lacks the ability to wait on manifestation, it soon becomes an old hobby quick. Unfortunately, we tend to treat the important things in our life the same way. We see the importance in working hard to reap the due reward but still find ourselves complaining throughout the entire waiting process.
Whether we know what the end result will be or not, waiting is difficult. We live within a society that promotes a 'right now' mentality. Everything that we need is being manufactured to be at our fingertips. You don't want to wait in line, order online. You don't want to wait five to ten business days, order express shipping. Nothing seems to be worth waiting for now and days. We don't want to wait for food, travel, or love but what is it that we think we're missing out on if we don't get these things immediately?
I sit and contemplate on the way that I act sometimes and I amaze myself at how unraveled I become when I want something but then I'm told, that I would have to wait. I ask myself, 'do you really need that today and will you be okay without it'? Outside of health concerns, we should all work daily to be more patient because majority of the things that we lack patience for we don't need anyway. Is that cheeseburger really going to provide you with that much satisfaction? Simply wait. Forget what society tells you and search out the more important things going on around you and trust, these small matters will become even smaller.
So the next time that you're in a position of waiting, and you will, please remember to be still and to be quiet. Good things come to those who wait. The Bible teaches that patience is virtuous. Be patient. Peace
