I was waiting in the doctor's office while the patient was having a procedure. How much time do you spend waiting? In the checkout line, "on hold" on the phone, watching a train cross the tracks? It seems like hours, but it's often only minutes or even seconds.
Why are you in such a hurry? What's more important than what you're doing right now? How productive are you with your waiting time?
Are you anxious? Are you angry? Are you impatient?
Are you relaxed? Are you prayerful? Are you thankful?
As for me, I drifted asleep. I wasted my waiting time when I could have been waiting with Jesus.
Lord Jesus, help me to see the time that I wait as an opportunity to spend time with you. Amen.
