Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Timing is everything. If we rush what is, ultimately, meant to be, the entire process is neglected. Processes are in place for preparation. Rushing or ignoring it will lead to disaster because no foundation has been established. Nothing in life is immediate. Nothing worth having comes overnight. I think people that strive for instant gratification are miserable. Creating our own time schedule set strict limitations on something so great, that will only be half as great without proper preparation. 

Sometimes waiting simply means self preparation. In that case we, ourselves, are not yet ready to receive what it is we're praying/hoping for. It can also mean letting go to allow something potentially great to become, in due time, as great as it can possibly be. Good things come to those who wait, however, to make things clear, patience doesn't connote stagnancy. It's just what I would like to call the preparation era; not just 'waiting' for things to fall into place but mentally preparing (action verb) for things when they do, finally, fall into place.

We shouldn't rush life. If we do, it becomes detrimental to the natural, consistent flow of time. It cannot be controlled by humans. We cannot stop, rewind, fast forward, pause or even press play at our leisure. All we can do is live it out without fear of yesterday and look forward, hopeful about the future. Everything has its own time and space in the universal garden; there is a time to plant (put in) and a time to harvest (receive) and everyone's growth seasons are different. We must respect the matter of time for all it's worth and make the most of the only time we have, which is the present.
