What is the hurry?

We all have patience issues right?
What, I’m the only one?
I’m the only one who wants what they want RIGHT now! Like a petulant child?
No, you too!
Good, I’m glad I’m not alone. That makes me feel better.

All that being said, I believe God granted me my youngest daughter to teach me to slow down. She is always, the last to finish eating; get ready to leave for church; walk through the door after school. She has-at times-literally stopped to smell the roses.
UGG!
She doesn’t realize that I am perpetually on a time table.

Sometimes it’s cute, but most of the time I get frustrated. I have a million things on my mind and I just want to run into the store to grab a gallon of milk and get on my way.

And I know, God does all things in his time. This is hard for me as well. When I have made a decision, I am ready to go and I want God to open all the doors/move obstacles/etc… I know, God’s plan and my plan aren’t always ate never the same. This is something I am constantly reminding myself. Waiting on God to reveal His plan takes a lot of patience…something I am (sometimes) in short supply.

Thankfully God is not.
He has unlimited supply of patience, which means He is waiting on me to stop being so hurried and listen. To wait for Him to reveal His plan.
Man, if that’s not a role reversal.
Him waiting on me while I’m waiting on my daughter.
If that’s not a lesson (or ten) for me to learn, I don’t know else there is to say.

Blessings. Lots of Love. And Big Hugs.
