Patience is REALLY hard! But God tells us we need to learn it!
We need time to just be – to learn to slow down and to wait. Waiting is valuable – it produces perseverance and trust in God. Also, when you are waiting, you learn things about yourself. Abraham waited many years for a son, and by the time the child arrived Abraham was wise, close to God, and in tune with what He wanted. Abraham was ready to be a father to a people.
