… for something to happen
…for someone to turn up
…for things to change
…for the thing that I want
As a society we have got very bad at waiting. We live in a culture of instant. We have lost the art of waiting patiently.
In waiting we see what happens. We haven’t decided what is best. We don’t try to force a hand.
We believe in a God of time and place.
A God who knows what he is doing.
And so, we wait with him
you know my impatience,
my need to try to sort things now.
Help me to wait
and for you;
as I allow you to do your will.
This year for Advent, some friends and I are using Advent and Christmas Wisdom from Henri J. M. Nouwen. You’re welcome to join us on this journey. Feel free to comment here, or on Twitter using #adventbookclub
