I looked out at the cars before me…how on earth could there be traffic where there was none just few minutes ago, and my late self was stuck right in the middle of it – I was bound to miss the bus!
I fussed, fumed, prayed and all, the only thing I could not do was turn into a pillar of salt-That’s what waiting does right? Keeps us right where we don’t want to be.
You know what, it took some minutes for me to keep fuming, some more minutes to take out my purse, take some notes and coins out of it and some minutes more to hand it over to the dear driver.
But the minute I opened the door and stepped out in one fluid motion, the traffic gave out…(kr!!)
The cars started moving….and before I could say jack. The taxi was wheezing past the bus stop I wanted to be…imagine the look on my face..
“You just had to be a ‘minute’ more patient.”
“I bet You couldn’t resist this lesson Lord”
Most times in our lives, our stuck situations are about to loosen up, things are just about to get real better, our lives are about to move real smoothly…till we jinx it up with our impatience!
Learn to Wait!!!
I must confess waiting comes with the most uncomfortable feeling of stagnant,delay and despair, but this is where you are stretched and molded in the believing, trusting Christian the Lord seeks.
It’s bound to look helpless and feel like the world is moving on without you and passing you by…
But I know one thing that does not move nor pass away – the Word of GOD
and He says ‘Though it may tarry….(Habakkuk 2:3) and ‘Do not be anxious for anything..(Philippians 4:6) for He the Lord will fix that need..(Philippians 4:19)
All things will work for your good…
The appointed time is coming…that delay in your expectations and dreams is to help you value that blessing or that change you so desire…and oh, it is coming. Just around the bend…
Don’t get out of your waiting area for a quick fix…
Don’t leave that Taxi!!
Till next time,
Chayil said it….
