the last few years of my life, i feel like i’ve been in a constant period of waiting. maybe it’s because life is so transitory and changing when you are in college, and in graduate school. no permanent home, no permanent job, and no permanent classes. things change, all the time. people come into your life, and because they are also in a transitory state, eventually they leave–or you have to leave. either way, it’s lots of waiting.
i’m a patient person when it comes to lines in walmart and drive-thrus, and turning in traffic. i’m so not patient when it comes to the waiting for emotional and spiritual things. but at the end of the day, the waiting is worth it. the waiting, and wondering, and hoping, and questioning. it’s all worth it. i believe i will look on the goodness of the Lord, in the land of the living. so i’ll wait. what i’m waiting on–in the end, it’ll be worth the difficulty.
