We all have expectations, things we dream about and earnestly hope for. Things we secretly beg for when the sun goes down and the earth sleeps. Things that impregnate our every sigh, things that dominate our every wish and fill our thoughts as we blow on those birthday candles or connect with that shooting star. We want a miracle, we wait for it, pray for it, hope for it and nurse it in our minds
Waiting is never easy. Waiting seems like forever and a day. It’s the most insecure feeling on the planet. What if your expectations are not met? What if your disappointment is legendary? And on the flip side what if it is more than you could have ever hoped or dreamt about? What if it is everything you thought it would be and all you wished for? Expectations are like a coin and unfortunately you are not the one tossing it.
There are some things you can control in life but many times the things that are the most important are the most unpredictable and beyond your control. Your woman goes into labour and you wait, not sure if she is gonna come out with a baby or the doctor is gonna come out with that look on his face, the look that says “bad news”. Expectations cause palpitations not to mention the waiting!
If you are as impatient as I am then you would agree that waiting is no fun at all. Waiting for that job, promotion, husband, child, business deal, whatever it is that is needed to complete the cycle and thrust you into your happy place sometimes seems to crawl towards you, annoyingly so. This year I am learning to be patient. A step at a time, one day at a time. Knowing that God has it covered, there is nothing that is beyond His control and He wishes me nothing but the absolute best. Patience walks hand in hand with trust. The more I trust Him, the more waiting for something He has promised seems like a breeze. This year cultivate patience, build on your trust, God never fails and when He says He has you covered, you can sit easy, relax and sip on some kool aid till the appointed time comes.
Have a great weekend Chutzpah fam,
