What Waiting Teaches Us

We are not in control. But God is.
One of the most difficult times of waiting I’ve had was with my son at the airport. I was waiting for flight MH17 – one day after the very same flight had been shot down over Ukraine.
I must admit it took some courage to catch that flight. And it was made even worse because it was delayed by 3 hours and no one would tell us what was going on.
I wonder what you’ve had to wait for in your life? It could be for someone to come home, for the outcome of a court case, or waiting for grief to pass.
In those times – like when I waited for our flight – we’re reminded that we aren’t in control. But we should also remember that God is.
If you’re waiting right now, use it as a time to learn to grow in your trust of God. He always has perfect timing, and promises to be with you as you wait.
