What does this word mean to you?
My husband has been known to intercept a long queue (people waiting in line) and ask if he can step in because he doesn’t like to wait. He usually gets a smile but not a place in line.
I am learning that when I am in an emotionally heated conflict, that the causative issue can change dramatically and sometimes even disappear if I, as I do on rare occasions, wait.
The Bible tells us repeatedly that we should wait on the Lord. It even says that if we do we will renew our strength.
We easily sing, “Teach me Lord, teach me Lord to wait.”
But do our prayers include “to wait” as one of the desires of our heart?
