What to do while you wait - for your plans to come through

“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting”

I can boldly say that waiting is a common denominator for every human on the surface of God’s green earth. We have all waited at some point or the other in our journey through life.

Learning to wait to get what you want in life can be hard. You don’t always know whether your wish is around the corner or a long way to come. Life can be unpredictable, and it’s tough to live with unpredictability when you’re told that things happen if you make them happen.

But we are left with little choice but to wait.

We wait for support, help, assistance. We wait for paperwork, visa, contracts. We wait for answers to our requests. We wait for emails, phone calls, messages. We wait for permissions, approvals, agreement. We wait for details, more information, clarity.

We wait for prayers to be answered. We wait for the time when we finally overcome a great struggle. We wait for the promise. We wait for the child we desire so deeply. We wait for a healthy relationship with our family.

We simply can’t skip the waiting period. As they say, “Good things come to those who wait.”

But waiting can be a bore. Can be difficult. Unbearable even. This is probably because we live in a world where instant gratification is the norm. We want things to happen right-away, and waiting is just not something many people are good at. Waiting is fast becoming a lost art.

This is where the problem lies, especially because most things in life happen to take time and waiting therefore is inevitable.

Do you know that waiting develops patience when we let it have its way in our lives and understand that we can’t have everything we want immediately. Not getting what we want when we want it can be disappointing, but it’s an incredible tool to learn the art of waiting. 

When you feel like you can’t do anything until someone else does something or something else happens or the next thing comes together, please note that, there are some things you CAN do while you wait.

Things that grow you. Help you. Build you. Prepare you. Things that, amazingly, are actually a BIG part of the process.
