In our speedy society, we have forgotten how to wait. We want everything now, forgetting the beautiful instruction from Ecclesiastes 3:1, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven…” We can even use our spiritual practice of meditation to attempt forcing enlightenment; affirmative prayer for speeding up the desired results of that for which we pray; Live Visioning for imagination rather than intuition.

When we are free from the desperation of “now,” then the gap between where we find ourselves and where we want to be dissolves. When we possess the patience to “wait upon the Lord” —Lord being the Great Law of Life—grace is the result. Patience is humble. Its handmaiden is trust—the trust that grace will manifest at precisely the right time.

God lives in my heart and loves as my life!

The vitalizing energy of pure Spirit renews my body temple!

My life bears witness to the miraculous nature of God!

I am abundantly grateful and gratefully abundant!

The Christ consciousness is resurrected in me today!

This is a good beginning! And so it is! Amen!
