PBPGINFWMY There Is A Time For Everything: Chapt. 28 Purpose Driven Life
Posted by infinitygoods on March 10, 2008
When we think about it, our entire life is nothing but a waiting period. We wait nine months to be born on earth and we wait an entire lifetime to be born into our eternal life.
God’s time is based on eternity. What may seem like eternity for us on earth is the blink of an eye to God.
There is a lesson to be learned. If you’ll allow and forgive the trivial allegory, while we pray: “God give me patience, and I want it right now,” God answers “We will sell no wine before its time.”*
We are the wine and the Vine’s branches. It takes an entire lifetime for us to learn the good, unlearn the not so good, and form our character traits.
Rick Warren asks us “Where in your spiritual growth are you having to be patient because there seems to be little progress?” In which areas do you need to be patient and persistent?
