Multiple reminders have been occurring in my life and those whom I love that the timing we want to occur is not likely to happen if there is someone else involved in the event.
Whether it is work related, family related, or anything involving anyone outside of your control, you and I have to remind ourselves that it is out of our control.
Some of those cliches from my past come to mind such as:
- Do what you can, and leave the rest to God
- Lord, give me patience, and give it to me right now
- Good things come to those who wait.
That last one can be either an excuse or a reminder. Only you know if you are being a slacker and negligent, or if it’s time to move our focus onto something else.
Farmers know that they can’t rush the growing process and dumping too much fertilizer can kill a crop too.
