Waiting

Waiting on others can be a challenge.  For instance, have you ever waited in a long line at the grocery store and the cashier is really slow at bagging, or even worse, she encounters a glitch with the computer system?  Sometimes you just want to scream about When the time is righthow much time we spent waiting on others.

As I grow older, I have learned to embrace these times as a gift to talk to Jesus or to find gratitude that I have two healthy legs to stand upright in a line in an air conditioned building (living in Florida is hot).

Recently though, my patience has been challenged with slower-than-expected progress on our plans to build our mission house on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua.   Luckily, I was able to take step back and remind myself that I am NOT in control of this process — He’s in charge!  Knowing this is so comforting to me.  Whether you are waiting to hear from someone about your next job, medical test results or delivery of a promise, when the time is right…the Lord will make it happen.

The smallest family will become a thousand people, and the tiniest group will become a mighty nation. At the right time, I, the LORD, will make it happen.
– Isaiah 60:22
