Have you ever found yourself getting very impatient while you’re waiting for something special to happen? Being impatient can likely weaken peaceful feelings.
This is what happened to God’s people in the desert. They were waiting a long time for Moses to come down from the mountain where he was talking with God. They were tempted to give up on God, and make another god for themselves. You’ll read about the very sad thing they did by making a golden calf that they worshipped in place of God. How dumb!
Patience is a great virtue. It is a gift from God. Patience teaches us to know that whatever is happening right now is OK, no matter how much we are looking forward to something else happening in the future. So right now, feel your physical body—it’s weight, your breathing, your heart beating. God is right here, right now!
