Maybe you know what your calling in life is.  Maybe you do not.  Maybe you have an idea of what it is supposed to be, but nothing is certain.  Anyway you slice it, there is going to be a waiting period. 

From I Samuel 16:13 until II Samuel, David is anointed king.  Before he becomes king though, he is an armor bearer and lyre player for the present king, Saul.  While doing this, he is still taking care of his father’s sheep.  Then, after defeating Goliath, he has to go on the run until the death of Saul. 

This leads one to wonder, why in the world would David have to wait so long to be king?  Because God said so.  God wanted David to grow more before he took such great responsibility (over these small things and such).  Does this help with impatience?  No.  Does it make the waiting easier?  Yes.  Hope is the great cure and the only real cure in this world.

Until Our Next Meeting,
