Day 7: Be prepared to wait

Floods can rise up as if out of nowhere. What seemed like a pleasant country lane can be transformed by raging torrent which it would be foolish to cross. One must either wait patiently for things to calm down or find an alternative route. Noah had to wait more than 200 days whilst the floodwater drained away! Genesis 8:3-12

Be patient and trust the LORD. Don’t let it bother you when all goes well for those who do sinful things. Psalm 37:7

Don’t be angry or furious. Anger can lead to sin. Psalm 37:7-8

Be patient, then, beloved, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer awaits the precious fruit of the soil—how patient he is for the fall and spring rains. James 5:7
