We all have heard the saying that patience is a virtue, but how do we invoke that quality into our everyday lives? Knowing that everything is in divine order and divine timing may aid us on this quest. If we quietly remind ourselves of this concept, our need-for-speed might just float away.
Recently I had an experience that required patience. I have been in the process of writing a novel and I began to feel impatient: I am not writing fast enough … I won’t make my deadline … I just want to be done!
I shared my feelings with my literary agent and he explained to me that the story has it’s own timeline: “Take some time off, read a book and relax.”
He then explained that I should write when the story is “busting” out of me. Without the stress of impatience, the process of writing has become enjoyable again. I look forward to mingling with my characters and observing what occurs next. I am thankful for the wisdom that surrounds me in the form of friends and family.
Patience truly is a virtue.
