Today, I went to my doctor's office to get my blood checked. [It's good] As I was getting off the elevator following the elderly lady in front of me, this other elderly lady waiting to get on the elevator tried to push my electric chair to hurry me up. Really? She dodged 'the look' from me because my eyes were on the chair's joystick and I was trying to keep anybody from getting run over.
Who can relate? Sure we often think our force can speed things along in a helpful manner. Then after a calamity occurs, we realized we should have been patient and waited. It's not easy to slow down or even stop for a moment in our busy worlds. We've got things to do, places to be and people to see, right? Is your attitude upon arrival one of peace or frustration?
The lyrics 'when peace, like a river, attendeth my way' comes to my mind when I think about patience. The sound of a river flowing is a soothing sound. The flow of a river is what it is and only turbulent times rush it and cause havoc to occur. Don't we want our lives to flow steadily like a river?
Good things come to those who wait. Force is not always the best course to take. Just be patient.
