I would like to see some changes in my life with stuff like losing some weight, being more steady with exercise, having more patience with my kids, being less skittery about meeting new people, etc. With some of these things, I need to take the proverbial bull by the horns & get after it.
But some changes take time & require me to wait. With some changes, I’ve learned that when I meddle & tinker with the stuff that needs to change, my efforts only make things worse. And if you’re a “make it happen” person, then “wait” is the very close relative to other four letter cuss words.
Here are some benefits to waiting:
- Slow change often lasts longer than quick changes;
- the Bible says, “In patience, posses your soul”;
- Sometimes our wisdom grows in the waiting time
Have a fantastic weekend!
