About a month ago, my phone screen stopped working. So I took it to the store and they had to order me a new one. Little did I know that the phone they ordered would not be able to make phone calls. When I finally realized this, I took my phone to the store and they had to order me a new one. This one could indeed make phone calls, but hopefully the person on the other end of the conversation didn't want to hear my voice, 'cause the audio speaker was broke during shipping. So again I took my phone back to the store. They had to order another. My mom asked for a lend out so that I could call people (that's my preferred way of using the phone to communicate). So I took the lend out and went home. BUT, they didn't activate the phone fully. So the next couple days were frustrating as I tried to use a phone that wasn't set up. Next, they helped me activate the lend out and only then did I realize that even their lend out phone has issues. It turns off at 47% battery and doesn't make phone calls, but can receive the calls as long as you put it on speaker phone.
Through all this I learned one thing. I strongly dislike waiting. I had to use this vital (don't know if it is technically considered a skill, but that's what we're going with) skill. It was terrible. I've always thought that I was at least decent at the whole being patient thing, but that category of my life definitely needs some improvement.
Anyways, all this got me thinking. I was really hoping there was a reason for all my waiting buried somewhere inside all these broken phones that keep finding me. As it turns out, I think there was.
There is one thing that all Christians are waiting for. We look forwards to it patiently with a smile on our faces at the marvelous thought. Our eyes light up when our minds travel to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are waiting for this. To me this waiting is kind of hard because I want to stand before God. I want to see His face. But at the same time, the waiting gives me time to live my life for God so that at the end, I can hear Him say "well done" when the time for me to stand before him has come. And I think that is what makes waiting worth it.
