Waiting. Isn’t easy. Or pleasant. At least most of the time.
To watch this…
I love watching the sunrise and sunset. But it takes time. And sometimes it feels like an eternity and in this case of the above sunrise, took 38 minutes. And that is a long time to sit and wait (for me anyway). But if I look away, the moment happens in an instant and it’s gone.
Why is it so hard
Why are we in such a hurry
the next day
the next holiday
Think about it, when was the last time you said, “I can’t wait ….”
But what about the moments we miss in the waiting because we are impatient and close ourselves (or our eyes) to living in today.
Whatever you are waiting for …
Something to start
something to end
the next event
Remember there are moments you may miss today if you are living in the wished for tomorrow.
This is beautiful, but if I had looked away I would have missed the moments captured above.
What are you missing out on, while waiting and looking ahead?
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.
