Why God Allow Us to Wait?

"When God know you are ready for the responsibility of commitment,
He will reveal the right person for you under the right circumstances,
so wait patiently,
don't waste your time searching and wishing for someone to come into your life,
grow and be ready, and you will see,
God will give you a love story far better than what you've been dreaming"


I’ve been posting entries about waiting for like a hundred times. Waiting has been part of almost every month of my blabbing.

Waiting for something to happen, waiting for a great opportunity, waiting for a beautiful moment to come, waiting, waiting, waiting, whatever it  is.

Until waiting became one of the most complicated word in a dictionary that is so difficult to understand. Why God allow us to wait longer? How to fully understand the value of waiting without breaking into pressure?

There's one at least beautiful lesson I got from Rissa Singson-Kawpeng, Editor-in-Chief of Kerygma magazine, one of the topics she wrote in her book, “Confessions of an Impatient Bride” was about the value of waiting, she compared it to the attitude of the potters in Japan:

"In Japan, potters carefully molded the clay and waited long to release the bubbles before they would put it in the molding jar..."

Rissa concluded the story with...

"God has a purpose for our waiting. He's actually preparing us so that when it's time for us to make a big decision, we won't crack under pressure". Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-11), indeed God's time is always perfect!

"Where we are is where God wants us to be. No "ifs", no "buts". If we believe that there are no ifs in God's world, then we can rest assured that where we are right now and how we got here is where God exactly wants us to be". For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! Plans to give you a future full of hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

"When God doesn't reveal His plans clearly, maybe He is teaching us something better, something better than clarity".

And that's why God allow us to wait...
