I am so impatient.
In this instantaneous world of self gratification, I find I expect to get what I want, when I want it.
As a parent - that is how we raise our children. They are taught to obey the first time. They did what I demanded, the first time. As toddlers, they did. There were consequences when they didn't. I always made sure to follow through.
But as teens, they found out they have a choice and they don't think about the consequences much.
As an adult, I find that I don't think about the consequences too much, until it is too late.
This immediate internet that I carry wherever I go, movies on demand, music at my fingertips, out of season food in my fridge world that we live in overrides the lessons I received as a child.
"Good things come to those who wait."
I used to jokingly say, "Patience is a virtue, that I do not have."
My mother always said, "Don't pray for patience, because then God will allow for situations to occur, so that you can develop it."
But when we take the time - to sit back, and wait . . . we see God move.
He is there waiting for us . . .
We need to be there . . . waiting and expecting - Him.
