How to handle a ‘wait’ problem

Some people have a ‘wait’ problem.

They don’t like waiting, never have liked waiting, and feel they shouldn’t have to.

In today’s “real time social media driven breaking news every five minutes gotta have it now because I want it now” society, it appears no one wants to wait any more.

Just like many desiring to lose weight, they want miraculous results overnight.  Besides, who would rather wait then have instant results?

The same thing goes for many desiring marriage – they want what they want when they want it and they want it now.

They want the husband and the ring now.  And don’t let it have been 5 or 10 years since they’ve been believing God for a mate – now they’re like, “Okay, Lord, what’s going on?  How long do I have to WAIT!”

Instead of embracing this current season in their lives and enjoying every bit of it – they cry, complain and feel like they’re being punished not realizing the freedom and all the blessings that come with waiting.

If this sounds at all like you, don’t feel bad – we’ve all been there at some point.

Instead of complaining about waiting, embrace patience – grab hold of her and don’t let go while allowing God to determine your due season instead of someone else or even you.

Continue to grow spiritually and become a better ‘you’ each day while enjoying family, friends and even meeting new people along the way as God leads you to different places whether to serve, learn and grow even more.

Always think forward – don’t look back; always press ahead.

As you press ahead, enjoy the ride along the way and be so caught up in enjoying life where you are right now that you give all your desires, including your desire for a mate, totally and completely over to God and leave it there.

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.  Hebrews 10:36

But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.  Romans 8:25

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.  James 1:4

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  1 Peter 5:7

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.  Philippians 4:11???? ?????? r17????? ??????signalserotic?????? ???????? ????????trade360 no depositenglish to
