Patience

We are all in a bit of a hurry. Rush. Run. Go. Go. Go. It's sometimes feels like a maddening rat race and there is no exit off the spinning wheel. What are we chasing? Why do we push so hard? One of my favorite Psalms is 27.
It begins-
The Lord is my life and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?
It ends-
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

Patience requires trust. Trust that our waiting has purpose. To wait in futility is pointless. We hope. We trust. We have faith.
Go in peace and go with God.
