Waiting…

Yet again I’ve been reminded that I can’t run to people with my problems.
God first… then I get to deal or as is the case so often lately… wait.

So often I wish I had a fast forward button because I really want to skip through the days where it seems as if nothing is happening.

Chuck Swindoll wrote, “The hardest thing about life is that it’s so daily.

It’s so daily . . . what a simple way to say it but how terribly true! The tests that come like a flash and last no longer than a dash seldom do more than bring a brief crash.

But the marathons—the relentless, incessant, steady, persistent, continual tests that won’t go away—ah, these are the ones that bruise but build character.”

Saying it isn’t enough. I have to live it.

Today, I’m glad I don’t have a fast forward button. Because if I were in control, I’d miss out on most of the things that make life surprisingly delightful.

Some of those are late night walks along the river, reading in the secret structure park, wild Daisies, and licking the cake batter spoon.

“Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!” Psalm 27:14
