I was riding by the seawall in Clear Lake the other day, and saw a beautiful sunset beginning to take shape. So I pulled the car over and watched. Several people came and went, some taking pictures, some just waiting until the sun went down. But I stayed. A half hour after the sun had gone down, this shot presented itself to me, and I quickly snapped several pictures of a beautiful sunset.
We get anxious, thinking we have what is best many times., But if we will only wait, often things will get even better. We rush into fixing things ourselves too often, not allowing God to finish the work he wanted to do in us through the trials and tests that come our way.
Next time, remember to wait a bit. Quiet time never hurt anyone!
