True love waits.
Those words will forever be tied to sex in our minds, but I wish they weren’t. I wish we realized the power in those three words; power to transform our Christian lives.
We’ve made waiting all about singleness and sex. Waiting has become a problem to be fixed rather than a fixture of human existence. And because it’s a “problem” we spend our seasons of waiting just trying to get to the end, to speed up the process, to get on to what really matters.
Eventually, we get to the end. We get married. We get the job. We find the calling. And to our shock and surprise, we have to wait there, too. But we don’t know how to wait because we never disciplined ourselves to do so.
