I learned something this week as I was waiting on the train that takes me to work.
The train I was waiting on was about three blocks away. I could see it sitting at the station. It was late, but not moving.
After a few minutes of frustration, I asked out loud, “Why is it just sitting there?”
Another person waiting responded to me.
“It can’t come here until the southbound train gets here.”
Looking southward, there weren’t even lights heading in our direction.
“Really?” I asked.
“Yes,” they said.
True enough, once the southbound train got to our station, the one I was waiting on left the other station heading our way.
This caused me to think.
Some of us are waiting on things to happen in our lives and are growing frustrated because they are not.
PERHAPS there is a series of things that need to happen that do not have anything to do with you.
Maybe you need to ask the question of why you are still waiting.
Maybe you need to realize that some times it has nothing to do with you.
Maybe you wait patiently until it is your time.
Manage your frustration. Don’t give up. Trust God’s timing. He is always right on time.
