Don’t Hang Up; Hang On

I wait for the Lord . . .
and in his word I put my hope.
              —Psalm 130:5

“Are we there yet?”

“How long till Christmas?”

Childhood impatience often spills over into adult life. The gap between beginning and end is too wide, the space between want and result too great, the interval between prayer and answer too long.

So, we get cranky and irritable.

Like those apostolic fishermen, you may have “worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything” (Lk 5:5).

Hang on! At the right time, he will fill your net.

“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord” (Ps 27:14).

Don’t hang up if God doesn’t
answer on the first ring.
