That being WAITING.
That is, waiting in a spiritual and emotional sense. I think we talk about physically waiting for things quite enough. :)
But we wait for a lot of other things too...
- "Mr./Ms. Right"
- God acting in a specific way
- Friends changing (for the better, we hope)
- Family changing
- New friends
I could go on and I'm sure you have your own list. The above is just some of what we talked about last night. ;)
My question to you is this: Can waiting distract us from the bigger issues of life? If so, how do we keep it "in check," so to speak?
