Being Patient While Waiting for What You Want

Patience – is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances.

Being patient can hurt. Being patient is uncomfortable. We want what we want, when we want it. I don’t want to have to wait and stay in an uncomfortable situation, but the reality of life is that sometimes we have to go through difficult seasons to grow and blossom.

It can be painful to see others have the very thing our hearts desire so much, but remaining confident in divine timing and God’s plan is always comforting.

Sometimes our cravings for that new job, house, relationship, friendship, baby, promotion + raise; (whatever it may be) can be so strong that is serves as a distraction of the present moment.

I have friends in various stages in their life’s & we are all waiting on our next blessing. Or that next blissful moment. I can say I am so excited about what my future holds, but I’d be lying if I said I’m not tired of trying to figure out the unanswered questions in my life.

Man, one day I will have all the answers and I’ll look back at my youth and laugh..but for now I have to continue practicing patience..I’d rather have days filled with joy than worry!

  1. Great post! This is something I’ve been realizing more and more recently. I know there are blessings coming my way. For now, all I can do is be grateful for those I already have and to have an open heart. Thanks for sharing!
