Waiting –– I stink at it. I have always been a very anxious, "Type A", impatient person. Everything I do, I do with speed. My mind is seems to be running 5,000 miles a minute and I am trying to rush to catch up with it.
So many things are on hold right now. From information on the upcoming school year, to my family to activities with the kids to Matt's work to my work to travel plans. This is a particularly hard time of year and I like things to be neat and organized, and instead I feel like each part is running on its own track and not making it to the same station. And to be honest, very few of these aspects are even controllable.
Psalm 46:10 says "Be Still and know that I am God". It tells us to let go and trust God to do God's will. To just "Let go and relax." Sure it's easy in theory, but to actually put into practice is another story. For me it is a huge challenge.
So how to you deal with patience and waiting? Are you like me and are constantly telling yourself to just "calm down" or are you like my polar opposite, cool as a cucumber?
