4 Reasons For Waiting

Have you ever asked the question: "Why wait?" Well, here are four benefits of waiting to answer that question....
1. Waiting Builds Endurance
Patience builds endurance and endurance produces character. Diligence, loyalty and honor are all qualities produced by endurance that develop when we implement patience. Waiting actually helps shape us into great friends, spouses and members of society.
2. Waiting Reveals Our True Motives

Waiting has a way of highlighting a person's character and intent. People with poor motives won't wait long because they're not interested in the full commitment. They're more interested in short-term gains or self-indulgence. And if we're honest, we'll admit that we want someone who is willing to wait because we want someone who is in it for the long haul. 
3. Waiting Prepares Us 
In many cases the waiting period actually serves as a time of preparation for the answer. Waiting actively, enthusiastically and with a hopeful heart will teach us how to remain focused, committed and passionate when we finally gain what we have been waiting for.

4. Waiting Builds Anticipation

When we experience a long waiting period, we tend to cherish and take care of what have been waiting for more than those who didn't wait. People tend to treasure the things they have to wait for.

 Waiting for answers is a fact of life—nobody gets out of it. So the question is not if we'll wait, but rather how we’ll wait.
