I am not a patient person. I want things done right now, the right way, and right on time. I hate waiting. I don't like to wait for things. I hate having to sit and wait on a situation to get fixed, or an answer to come. Right now we are waiting. Waiting for an important answer to something. While we wait I also wonder, "Did we make the right choice?" All the what if's come up. All the "did we do the right thing" comes up. It is hard to wait. In the Christian's life often we must wait on God to answer. Sometimes it seems like the answer will never come. Sometimes it seems like God is far away. Sometimes it can seem like there will never be a good solution to something that you have been waiting on. Why does God make us wait? Is it to learn patience? The Bible says to wait on the Lord. It says those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. Waiting is hard, but I think that sometimes in the hardest of times, that God teaches us how to be patient, how to sit and be able to hear His voice, because sometimes when we are quiet we can hear Him better. The Bible says to be still and know that I am God. How hard it is to be still, and to wait. But sometimes what a growth it can be in our walk with God. And sometimes what great things we can learn and more polished we can become.
