I don’t know about you, but I’m not good at waiting.  I have heard that not many people are good at waiting (if you know of someone who is – please let me know.  I want to meet them).  Every time I think I’m improving, God shows me something that I have to wait longer for.

This week it was my job.  I have been in a position on a temporary status for almost 2 years.  There have been many ups and downs – maybe they’ll hire me – maybe they won’t.  I believe that God put me in this job  for a reason and has asked me to wait.   I believe God has been at work – stretching my patience.  Now He has tested me by asking me to continue to wait.  I am human and breathing, so I still have a lot farther to go.  Why is it that patience takes so long to develop?

I really don’t mind waiting as long as I can do something.  Give me a task and I feel like I am more patient.  But ask me to sit still.  Ouch.  I don’t enjoy those times.

I’m thankful for God’s faithfulness.  He is so patient with me.  He loves me so much that He has hand chosen this opportunity to wait – to develop the ability to wait in my life.  I don’t know what God has for my future.  But I know that God has my best interest in mind.

  1. It is encouraging to do a Bible word study on the word “wait”. It’s in there a lot! Hmmmm……maybe because we have such a hard time doing it! 🙂


    1. Repetition is the key to learning. Repetition is the key to learning. 😉 I remember that from a 7th grade teacher. God clearly thinks that way as well. Do you still have your notes from your study on the word wait?
