Patient Expectation



One of the most frustrating parts of driving, is when you get behind that large truck, that school bus that has to stop every fourteen feet, or that old lady that thinks driving 25mph is being aggressive. It's always when you've got some place to be, too. Sometimes, during the midst of my instense frustration, I began to think that maybe God's hand is in the placement of these vehicles in front of me.

Sometimes I find that I get so frustrated when things don't happen when I want them to. It makes sense that it should happen the way I thought. I would serve a great purpose to happen the way I thought. But somehow, and for some reason, it's not happening the way I thought! I believe that's God. I believe that's when He steps in to say, "just wait. There's no hurry...not if you really believe that I'm in control. I'm the One who's going to get the credit for this. In my time...you'll see."

Yes, it's hard to have great expectations and have patience at the same time. But, that's what trust really is...and I'm still learning. How about you?
