These days it seems we are always waiting on something. We are waiting for something to occur or we are waiting on someone to make it happen. Life is filled with waiting. I suspect that this Christmas you will do an awful lot of waiting. At the mall or store shopping, you will find yourself waiting in line to be served. If you are traveling during the holidays, half of your time will be spent in traffic to reach your destination.

There is a biblical expression that says “let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Waiting is a part of living. It can frustrate you at times and it can even be depressing when you find yourself waiting on something to change or occur for a very long time.

Former President Barack Obama said, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

As you walk with God, you will find that you spend more time waiting than you do receiving. And when you receive what you are waiting for, then you will begin waiting for something else. So, if you don’t learn to wait with joy, you will live in frustration.

Think on this for a moment. God knows when the time is right. He has a set time for accomplishing things in our lives.  He knows what you need, when you need it, and how to get it to you. However, we should be about action in our life and not sit around allowing it to pass us by.

Bradley Whitford said, “Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” So Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
