I am very impatient. I want things to happen at the pace I determine is best. I am challenged to consider that God’s timing is not my timing, and His timing is perfect. While we may believe we know best, and certainly have our thoughts about how our situation should turn out, can you trust the Lord for His perfect will? Consider the Scripture: “For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay” (Habakkuk 2:3).
