There’s this saying that goes, “ If you’re waiting on God for it, then it’s worth the wait”.
Some people seem to have their lives all planned out, they follow the ‘Naija’ protocol – go to school, graduate, go for service, get a job, get married, have children, with little or no breathing space.
Some have to wait at some point, usually when it comes to gaining admissetting married, the first two usually as a result of the bad system in Nigeria.
Waiting is not an easy thing to do, especially when other people who are said to be on the same level (age, class, status) with you are ‘getting it right’. It’s really not easy to be patient if something you really desire is being delayed; but you can choose to be patient – you should be patient.
Don’t be in a hurry to get your destination, that you forget what it took to get there. A lot of people have rushed past God’s perfect plan for them all because they were unwilling to wait a little while.
One thing that makes waiting unbearable, is waiting without having the feeling of being better. While waiting, get better, improve on your skills and abilities, you’ll be the better for it.
If you ever experience a gap year, or are currently experiencing a gap year, you can learn a skill and work towards personal development. It not only takes your mind off what you%2only takes your mind off what you’re waiting for, it helps you know that the time spent waiting is not wasted.
Get to know God more. There’s nothing sweeter than getting to know God more, and experiencing Him on a new level. Walk more closely with God during your waiting time and it’ll definitely be worth the wait.
Start improving on yourself in every area, wait on God, not on man. Get better in your waiting period. He who laugh last, laughs best.
And remember, great things don’t always come easy.
