Helping You Over The Mountains of Life
Yesterday, I told you about my Jeep battery and the trickle effect.
I had to wait 15 minutes while the battery charged enough to start the car.
I took the time that I waiting, and used it to clean out the Jeep.
There are always times when you have to wait.
Most of those times people fuss and complain about the delay.
A grocery store line, a restaurant, a bank line, a doctor's office,
even a slow web page loading, life gives us delays.
One of the measures of the growth of your spirit, is patience.
Learn to do this: If you can't speed it up, shut up.
Shut up, relax, read a book, whistle a tune, or softly sing to yourself
(yes, people will look at you strange but your peace will calm them).
My late father was a very busy and successful man. He worked hard but
understood the great value of peace and to find a slice of it whenever you can.
When he found an opportunity (or when the opportunity found him) to be quietly
still, he took it.
In such a busy and hectic world he told me this, "son, with all of the things that
you do, learn to grab peace and rest whenever you can, never stand up if you
can sit down and never sit down if you can lay down."
That was good advice. I now understand he was speaking more spiritual than
physical but it applies to both realms.
Do you have a song to sing or whistle, or a book to read the next time a peaceful
opportunity of delay finds you?
Wait in Peace.
