Acknowledging present good at hand

Whether we are waiting for a job, exam results, a spouse, or a physical healing, waiting can be a difficult time if our life feels on hold and our future seems to be in the hands of others, or of circumstances. 

On the other hand, waiting can be a period of spiritual preparation, of eliminating obstacles and clearing the path ahead. The way we wait can facilitate how we go forward.  

Impatience, anxiety, fear—these are like stones scattered on our path, impeding advancement. The difference between passive or anxious waiting and active spiritual expectation is determined by our perception of what has authority to govern our lives.
