|The road may be long, but at least you're going forward.|
It was a time of self-reflection.
We talked about how we could have already had what we wanted if we waited instead of getting impatient. This has been the case with several areas of my life. My house is one of them. Although I live in a nice place, I could have had an even nicer place if I trusted God more. Instead I grew impatient and took the first nice place I kind of liked. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God had better for me. I had several clues. Yet I settled for second (or maybe even third) best. I thought getting there faster would make me happier.
Faster and bigger are not always better.
We have to trust God.
If we want to do things right we have to do things God's way. There's no getting around that.
He creates the short cuts, not us.
