Patience is indeed a virtue…
But what the heck does that even mean?
I have no clue what it means to be patient. I guess it has something to do with waiting for something to happen. At least that is the way I have defined it for the last 10 years. Realizing more and more that one of the biggest issues and hurdles for all 20 somethings and beyond is patience.
Can I be honest with you? I hate being patient, absolutely hate it. I struggle to sit waiting for someone or something for 2 minutes, I check my email obsessively in waiting for a response, and to be honest I hate being patient with God and the future. Patience literally eats away at me, like something prodding me along to find answers and have results right now.
Here is the crazy thing, I have been patient for the last 9 months now. Seriously, I have been patiently waiting and learning. Preparing and watching, and learning what it means to be patient. Instead of me rushing into something, I have stepped back and learned what it means to be patient and prepared instead of hurried and rushed.
This season or chapter of my life is all about patience and preparation and I really feel the squeeze the more I learn about being patient. It is almost like the people I am waiting to hear back from know that God is teaching me patience so they are assisting by taking their time.
