On Waiting: A Social Commentary

Posted on November 14, 2013 in Blog | 3 comments

We wait to become 16 and then wait to graduate from high school and college. We wait for our own place…freedom from the oversight of parents. After all, life begins at 21!


We wait to be grown and marry and have babies, and then wait for these babies to  get out on their own (we think that day will never come, and when it does, we miss them deeply).

We wait to retire, then wait to die (yes, we do that when we choose to live dying and not die living).  We wait to be grateful because we feel we don’t have enough to be grateful for.

We wait to accept Jesus (after all we have time right?)  In a state of anxiety we even wait our breath (don’t do that…breathe!)

As we wait, we waste precious time/precious life.  We miss out on holy days and holy encounters…waiting.  What are we waiting for?  This is it.  This is life.  We are living it now, abundantly!

Why can’t we just “be”, and live every moment as though it were our last…as someday it will be.  Wait on the Lord.  Nothing else!


  1. You are so right, time slips away so fast, we must live, each day as if it’s our last.Live your life stop waiting, what ever will happen, will happen ,when God see fit for it to happen.

  2. Carol, thank you for stopping by the site. I hope you will visit frequently. Let us live like there is no tomorrow.

  3. Yes, waiting to do one thing or another is kind of like wishing your life away. I guess we just need to slow down and let God take control. Keep that pen flowing and the good words coming.
