The Waiting Game

“Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.” (Psalm 25:5)

Waiting. Baseball wives have lots of experience with it... 

         ...waiting for phone calls when the team is away

         ...waiting in hotel rooms during road trips

         ...waiting at the airport

         ...waiting for a game to end

         ...waiting through rain delays

         ...waiting outside the clubhouse

         ...waiting to make it to the next level

         ...waiting for the big contract

         ...waiting for the season to end

         ...waiting to see if he made the team

         ...waiting to see where he’ll play next season

         ...waiting to buy a house and put down roots

         ...waiting through rehab

         ...waiting to make plans.


You can tell the ones who’ve been around the sport for a while. They know just what they need to have on hand to make the wait endurable: toys for the kids, snacks and treats, reading material, projects to work on, etc. They often display a patient demeanor, having learned that checking the clock doesn’t make anything happen faster.

What a wonderful quality to be able to apply to our walk with Christ. We want our prayers to be answered today – He says, “Wait, I know what’s best.” We want to be spiritually mature now – He says, “Wait, it’s a process.” We want our friends and relatives to get saved right away – He says, “Wait, I’m still working.” We want other Christians to be perfect – He says, “Wait, they’re still growing.”

We want...well, eventually we may learn to want what He wants for us – nothing more, nothing less. His perfect will.

Is there anything worth waiting for more than that?

Prayer: Father, help me to wait for You and Your timing in all things in my life.

Suggested Reading: Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
