A single woman waits for a godly husband.
A wife waits for her failing marriage to improve.

Patients wait for healing from unexpected illnesses.
A woman waits for her womb to carry a baby
A teenager lost in thoughts, craves for attention
Who likes to wait? Whether it’s for something trivial like a seat at a restaurant, or something more serious like the examples above, waiting is never an easy process.
To wait is especially difficult amidst this technological boom of our current generation. Advances in technology enable most aspects of life to run quickly, conveniently, according to our every whim. We connect with friends by the touch of a button. We use our phone not only to make phone calls, but also as a GPS, a camera, a computer and a boom box all rolled into one. We shop online, read books on tablets, deposit money into ATM machines, and drive cars with keyless entries. In a world like this, why would anyone ever need to wait for anything?
Yet life does bid us to wait. Sometimes it forces us, in fact, to wait for things that seem unbearable to wait for. So we grow weary. Sometimes we grow angry. Maybe, if we are honest, we can even become angry at God. “Where are you while I wait?” we question as we look above. “Can He hear me, or am I actually alone?” we wonder in the quiet of our prayers.
This concerned, active and powerful God promises us that good things come to those who wait on Him.
So, I am applauding everyone for a successful de-cluttering session and encouraging someone to wait patiently on God for a new beginning.
