[5-minute-friday: on waiting]
The 5-minute-Friday is here. This time around the theme is “waiting.”
Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write. Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect.

Waiting. I wondered about that just a few days ago and once again found myself whining before God.
Like a little kid without a clear perception of time, I don’t like to wait to get something. I want it when I want it.
Yet He knows. It amazes me how much He knows (my mind can’t even fanthom the fact that He knows everything… for now that is just way too much for my brain to process, yet I know that He knows quite a lot… and that “a lot” keeps increasing every moment of my days). But I know He knows – and I do trust His timing even though I complain about it sometimes… okay, often.
I keep wondering… “Maybe I am doing something wrong, why is something I am waiting for isn’t coming?” The sweet thing is that when those thoughts enter my mind, He sends reminders of the fact that the time just isn’t right, but it shall come.
Who knows, maybe 10 years from now, I shall be re-reading my own posts, and laughing at myself, “Silly you. It was just around the corner – there was no need to complain and whine. ”
