There is almost no work in life so hard as waiting. And yet God wants me to wait. All motion is more easy than calm waiting, and yet I must wait until God shows me His will. ~ Anonymous. Twenty Four Hours A Day: Meditations (p. 25). Hazelden Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Wait for it…wait for it…wait for it…
If it isn’t stand-up comedy,
those words in most folk
bring anxiety, anticipation, dread,
a sense of foreboding.
When you pray,  “My Creator.
I’m now willing for you to have all of me,
good and bad.  I pray that You
now remove from me
every single defect of character
which stands in the way
of my usefulness to You and my fellows.”
we have essentially said, “when you wish”
but in our hearts we want change,
something different, better!
Waiting is tough. We need patience
which is foreign to us.
God, give me patience
and I want it NOW!!
The last line of the poem
“On His Blindness,” by John Milton,
the poet reflects that he has a place
in God’s world despite his disability.
“They also serve who only stand and wait.”
