Okay, confession time.
I’m terribly impatient. Like, chronically so. To be fair, I have gotten slightly better as an adult. However, I’m still seriously impatient.
I don’t like to wait for anything (including Christmas gifts). Seeing unwrapped – anything makes me all giddy and excited. I have to put anything like that out of sight so it doesn’t drive me bonkers.
I also really want what I want right away. I think that is where a lesson of trust comes in, huh? When I was pregnant this last go round, I was miserable at the end. I would wake up almost every morning crying that I was still pregnant. But, I had to trust that God was still perfecting my littlest one.
How often and in how many circumstances do I do that very same thing? I want XYZ right now. In reality, it just isn’t time yet. It may, in fact, not be a blessing to me yet. I’m not ready for whatever it is (job, money increase, more blog followers, another baby, fill in the blank).
So, I suppose one antidote for impatience is trust.
How do you deal with waiting?
