I recently received a gift with the phrase “good things come to those who wait”. Over the years my grandfather introduced this in our family and it’s become a bit of a joke with funny cards, gifts and plenty of laughs.
Whenever someone is being a bit impatient with a sibling or in regards to life, we often pull it out with a bit of tongue and cheek! I also remember as a child being told “patience is a virtue, after all even the snail reached the ark!” There are many phrases along those lines aren’t there?
We all long for a little more patience and understanding. God wants us to be strong and not give up on his timing and that reminds me of Psalm 27:14: “Wait for the Lord; be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord.”
