I broke my finger in a sporting accident, drove to the emergency room, then left impatiently after waiting three hours and getting no medical attention. Two years later, I required a surgery that only partially repaired my injury, and it cost thousands of dollars.
“If you would have had it set when you originally broke it, it wouldn’t be this bad,” the doctor patiently explained.
Patience might feel like it hurts, but I have a permanently crooked finger to remind me that impatience hurts more.
Prayer: Help me stop sabotaging myself because I’m too impatient to wait. Teach me to trust your timing, especially when it doesn’t coincide with mine.
