impatience

28 07 2008

found this today on kyle’s blog.  thought i’d share it.

“impatience is a form of unbelief. it’s what we begin to feel when we start to doubt the wisdom of God’s timing or the goodness of his guidance…the opposite of impatience is not a glib, superficial denial of frustration. the opposite of impatience is a deepening, ripening, peaceful willingness either to wait for God where you are in the place of obedience, or to persevere at the pace he allows on the road of obedience – to wait in his place, or to go at his pace.” —john piper
