When we wait on God and abide in God’s Divine timing…
our waiting is never in vain.
Long-suffering is not giving up
and yielding under pressure,
but trusting God to turn our difficulties
into fruitful breakthroughs
and developmental opportunities.
Haste can be the death blow
to calmness, dignity and to poise.
Haste can pay the highest price for everything.
Some have sacrificed time, energy, health, home,
and happiness in their haste to be well known
or to acquire material things.
In the race for wealth
or the haste to attain some ambition,
to gratify the dream of life,
some have thrown honor, truth, and genuineness
to the winds.
"Haste" might properly be placed
on thousands of cemetery headstones.
Most things that are great in life
are as a result of slow growth;
the newer, the greater, the higher,
and nobler the work,
the slower is its growth,
the more likely is its lasting success.
It has been said:
Mushrooms attain their full power
in a night;
Oaks require decades.
Fads are around for a few months;
a philosophy lives
and impacts generations.
