Graceful Waiting

By Sr. Nun Other

I’m aware of my impatience and its demands that escalate into anxiety. Impatience can be masked as virtue when perceived as efficiency. But instant results aren’t necessarily of God, at least according to scripture. Here are two examples:

Habakkuk 2:3  For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail.Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay.

Isaiah 30:18 Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.

Wait with expectation. Hope without reservation. Trust in God’s infinite wisdom.
