The Value of Patience
If you’re like me, and I believe most of us are, the word patience makes my skin crawl. In today’s instant society, we don’t want to wait in line for anything. We desire to check off our “to do” list as soon as possible, and move on to something else.
Waiting to have a child was not in our plans. We just assumed, we would conceive as soon as we decided it was time to have a child. This assumption comes from an erroneous belief that we are in control.
God used this delay for us to adjust our thinking. He is in control and we must not think otherwise. Waiting for God’s timing prepares us for the task of parenting. A patient parent is a good parent.
