There are times when I want something so badly that I will force the timing.
I try to rush through activities to get a moment with a beloved friend.
I drop everything and change direction in a matter of seconds.
I check my phone or my email in hopes that I have been contacted regarding something I am longing for.
But… I have found that when I do force the timing, I often end up regretting it.
I find that my expectations are so high, that the actual event can’t meet my needs.
It’s wonderful to be so excited about specific people or opportunities but I must keep my balance so that I am able to manage down my expectations.
I must learn to wait for the time when I can really savior and enjoy the company of a good friend or an exciting event, instead of pushing it to happen at an inopportune moment, due to my impatience and inability to… wait.
“Dear God, help me to know when to seize the moment and when to wait. Help me to be patient when the timing does not fit the occasion.”
