Waiting is usually a blessing.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

Many of us aren’t good at waiting. We want immediate results. Being patient is a stretch and not a comfortable one.

We may fail to recognize that waiting often serves a purpose. Timing of various aspects of a situation must come together precisely for an optimal outcome. Our ideas of what we want also frequently refine themselves over time. If we get what we want right away, it might not satisfy us longer term.

We also learn from the delay—about ourselves, others, and the situation. Waiting can improve our understanding.

Today’s message invites me to acknowledge a potential purpose in non-immediate results. When I’m willing to realize that delay is usually for my benefit, I will fret less in the moment and enjoy life more as it unfolds. Waiting helps ensure I get the best possible outcome.

How about you? Are you good at waiting?
