Patience

Here I wait—again!
__Waiting used to be so hard
__because of my impatience.
__But Lord I am learning
__to fit my schedule to Yours.
There are times though, Lord,
__when I still want what I want
__when I want it;
__and I am upset
__when it doesn’t come.
Help me through today’s lesson
__to learn that impatience with others
__amounts to nothing less
__than impatience with You—
__and that is sin.
Teach me, O God of providence,
__always to want what You want
__for me
__when You think it best
__for me to have it.
And may I also learn—
__by waiting—
__both Your peace
__and the joys of discovering
__opportunities
__that (otherwise) I would miss,
______________for His sake,
________________Amen.
