One of the confounding puzzles of life is our impatience. Whether it is our need to be first in line, frustration while waiting for a stop light that takes too long, or agonizing delays on the tarmac, we are a nation that simply does not want to wait. We may get angry, upset, or even resentful. Our spiritual lives can have the same tendency—to expect God to work in our lives faster and on our terms. But the pace is not ours to decide. Our earthly journey is set to God’s time. Jesus once cured a woman who was incapable of standing for 18 years. We can never lose hope in the Lord’s power to heal us and transform our lives…but in his time, not ours. Therefore, pray for the grace to persevere and alwaysto be patient in faith.
