TEACH ME TO WAIT

Nature provides many wonderful examples of patience. One of the most fascinating is the century plant, Agave. This cactus grows to a height of about six feet then stops, standing at the height for twenty or thirty years.And after a long period of time, a new bud suddenly sprouts at the top of the cactus and grows to a height of twenty to forty feet, and finally, a crown of glorious yellow blossoms emerges at the top.

It is said that the path of the christian life is a long journey with many unexpected turns, delays and setbacks.Progress can be difficult. It is likely that you are the one who gets the most impatient with your progress. Patience requires time, there are things that we need to invest time and effort and dedication before we could see the result, if you know its worth it. Like in planting rice, first you have to do the basic process and wait for it to become ready for harvest. As Romans 8:25 says , If we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Proverbs 15:18 , Patience brings peace. It is better to be patient than powerful Proverbs 16:32 (Reference Proverbs for women)
