I want it now!

These are words that small children say quite often. Bigger children (like this 65 year old) don’t say it, but think it. We want what we want and we want it now!

Sigh.

Psalm 40 has always been a favorite. It is a balm to the impatient soul. This meditation from the Paraclete Psalter (a beloved gift from a more beloved brother) was helpful.

Paraclete Psalter, p. 159

“God is never late, and waiting is what brings us into line with his divine timetable.”
