A Virtue I Do Not Have

9.15.2010

Patience has never been a quality of mine. In fact, I'd say it's probably my biggest struggle. Just wait on the Lord, be patient with what He is doing, etc...I say these things to not only to others, but to myself! For some reason though, it's always been a weakness. I pray for patience and I expect God to just give it to me. But instead, He gives me opportunities to be patient. I fail constantly! I hate it!

Today, I was given the chance to meet with the Director of Business Development for Raycom Sports. I didn't enter this meeting/interview anticipating an overly positive or negative result. And what I walked away with was a good middle ground answer. I was informed that while there isn't anything currently, that is more than likely going to change by the beginning of the year. And he also offered to utilize his connections at other various companies in the Charlotte area to help me find what I want in a job. So you would think I'd feel happy with all of these statements. But no, not me. I have to make things difficult for myself and wonder why I have to wait...



We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
-Joseph Campbell


I know that I cannot begin to wrap my mind around what God has in store for me. It could not be a job in the sports world at all. And I know and trust that whatever He has preparing for me, that He'll give me peace for that. It's just the waiting part that I'm no good at. But as Dr. Seuss once said

Somehow you'll escape all that waiting and staying.
You'll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.
 
Dr. Seuss was smart...
 
But God...that's who I'm gonna trust. 
 
I know He'll get me to where I need to be. 
 
Even if there aren't Boom Bands playing
