It's no secret that I struggle daily with patience. I'm not good at waiting. I like things to be done now, the second I make the decision, as in yesterday.
It seems like we are always "waiting" for something… a boyfriend, a proposal, a dream job, graduation, a baby, a promotion. When I saw this quote a few days ago it punched me right in the gut. I'm pretty sure it was made for me. You see, I've been struggling lately with waiting on God. I know His plan is the best plan, but sometimes I wonder why He can't just hurry up a little.
After reading this quote I took a step back and decided to truly embrace this season of "waiting". Whatever it is you are waiting for, I pray that we find patience and trust that His timing is the best timing. I pray that I can be happy and content in the "now" instead of when I have a bigger house, when I make more money, when I have a baby, when I make more friends, when I lose 10 lbs, when my closet looks like Pinterest, etc. etc. Let's make the best of today, because we aren't promised tomorrow!
"Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run and now grow tired. They will walk and not faint." -Isaiah 40:31
"He has made everything beautiful in its time." -Ecclesiastes 3:11
