One of the common tests that all of us experience in life is the test of patience.
There are many instances in life where we are called to be patient:
We need to wait patiently for the right person and the right time to marry. We need to endure patiently to be able to make ends meet for the family. We need to persevere patiently to achieve the promotion we’ve been eyeing.
We need to wait patiently in line to be able to file requirements. We need to endure patiently to find a job. We need to persevere patiently to be able to buy that house and lot we’ve been dreaming of.
We need to learn how to endure, persevere, and wait patiently. If we don’t, it will be like eating a fruit even before it is ripe.
If we refuse to wait and instead insist for something to happen before its appointed time, it may only cause problems in our lives like:
YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH HAVING A FAMILY AT A YOUNG AGE
A lot of the youth these days start to have families of their own even before they are ready. Instead of simply focusing on their studies, what they become concerned with is what to feed their family.
Another situation that you may find yourself in if you don’t know how to be patient is:
YOU WILL EASILY SURRENDER FROM THE BATTLES OF LIFE
For example, imagine someone who is always given everything and anything that he or she asks for. Naturally, this person will not be used to facing challenges in life. Maybe as a result, this person will find it so hard to find a job – every time that he or she is rejected, he or she already wants to give up.
Or what about you, whenever you see long lines, do you keep on putting off running your errands or filing your requirements and documents? Instead of you fighting, pressing on, and just doing it, you would continue to put it off, until days and weeks and months have already passed.
Imagine, that was just a simple long line, and already you gave up and surrendered. How do you think will you fare when you are faced with bigger, more difficult challenges?
YOU WILL FORGET HOW TO DREAM
dream is yours.
