One day Brooks was pacing the floor like a caged lion. One of his friends asked him, "What is the trouble?" "The trouble," replied Brooks, "is that I'm in a hurry, but God isn't."
We can certainly identify with that, can't we? And we agree with Henri Nouwen, who wrote, "God is never in a hurry." Sometimes though, if we are honest, we want to shout, "Hurry up, God!"
Oswald Chambers gave us this word of encouragement: "Watch God's way in your life, and you will find that He is developing you as He does the trees and flowers, a deep silent working of the God of Creation."
So stop pacing. He is working, and He knows exactly what He is doing.
