  1. The number of verses that emphasize waiting highlights how God values our patience. But we tend to rush things, want things wrapped up and resolved, and struggle when we have to wait for something or for things to unfold. We become impatient and frustrated and yet, God’s word repeatedly calls us to be patient. Thanks for the reminder. This is something I need to work on…

  2. It has never been easy to wait, but even without patience, God’s time is the best. I never want to recall how I wasted so much energy trying to rush my plans. Thank you for these affirmations.
