Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

It happened this morning.  I left home a little later than I wanted to and then…every traffic light was red.  At least it seemed that way.

You know the old saying – “Good things come to those who wait.”  Who wants to do that?  Waiting sure is tough, especially when I have an agenda, a plan for the day, week, month, or perhaps for the year.  It can be so frustrating when things don’t happen in my timing.  But maybe that means I don’t know best.  Maybe I’m not putting my trust where it belongs.

I believe that generally, being a person of action is best.  Not impetuous, but ready to move forward.  It’s important for me to plan, but also important to hold on loosely to my plans since I don’t know the future.  A few thousand years ago a guy named David (“a man after God’s own heart”) shared some thoughts.  “In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait in expectation.” (Psalm 5:3).  And in Psalm 27:14, “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

Good advice then that still rings true today.
