I am participating in Five-Minute Friday today. Kate Motaung posts a word prompt each Friday. Bloggers then just write for five minutes on that topic with out worrying about editing their work.
Today’s Prompt is: WAIT
Wait. A word I dislike, yet find myself saying far too often.
Wait seems to be a pattern in my life. Probably because I have a tendency to always be in a hurry. I can remember being in a hurry to grow up, move out, graduate college, marry, get a job.
My kids always seem to be in a hurry too. And now I am constantly telling them to wait. Wait till I am finished helping your sister, then I will help you. Wait your turn in line. Be content that it is winter. Wait patiently for Spring.
This season in my life, in some ways I feel as if God is telling me wait. Wait. I’ve got something for you to learn in this place. Wait. Learn contentment. Wait. See how I am going to move. Wait.
Wait on the Lord.
