Why we need to wait

— with expectation

We don’t like
to wait.
We are impatient.
We are a
want it now”
culture.
Give it to me
now.
Can’t you see
how this is
destroying
your soul?
You are not
willing to
let things
mature.
Even wine
needs time
to mature,
so it tastes better.
It is more
desirable
after it has been
set aside
for a while.
What happens
in the waiting?
— we heal
we grow and
we learn.
And while we
wait, we can
think
and discern
the will of
God.
You may not
be ready for
the things He
has planned
for you.
Your mind may
need
more wisdom,
knowledge,
and understanding.
The timing may
not be right.
Your body may
need more rest.
You are being
healed of your
wounded emotions.
They need time
to settle — 
to be taken to God
in prayer.
But, most of all
your spirit needs
to be refined
and made holy
in the
divine.
So, wait
and
do not grumble
in the waiting,
for you are being
prepared
for what’s
to come.
Let go,
trust
and surrender
your will
to
the one
who
knows
all things.
