I am good at a few things, but waiting is not one of them. Whether it is being put on hold when I call a business, sitting in the waiting room of my dentist’s office, or standing in the security line at the airport, I am impatient.
How about you?

Are you waiting for …
- Word about a job you want?
- The results of your recent medical tests?
- Mr. or Ms. Right to show up?
- Your pregnancy test results?
- The judge’s decision on your court case?
- A response to an important email?
- Approval for a loan?
- The answer to a prayer?
- The pain to stop?
If you are, I have good news. I still struggle with waiting, but over the years, I have gotten better. In this episode, Michele and I discuss five strategies for coping with those situations where you are forced to wait:
- Embrace it.
- Ask the right questions.
- Redeem the time.
- Encourage someone else.
- Trust God.
We may not like waiting, but we can get better at it. More importantly, we can learn to see it as a gift and learn from it.
