Impatience

Is not discouraged enough.

With so many images on our news feed

Of other people living their best lives;

Reaping harvests and claiming awards,

Its easy to excuse each other

For feeling like good things

Don’t come to those who wait.

Patience may be out of fashion

But it’s definitely not obsolete.

Patience is not inaction

Nor a failure to innovate.

Nor laziness.

Nor passivity.

Nor fear.

Patience is trust.

Trusting yourself and your contributions

Trusting the process.

Trusting that you will be ready when opportunity comes

That even if you fail you will get back up.

It’s trusting that God has not muddled up your life.

Impatience may help you get to a short cut

But that’s no way to live.

Take your time.
