Waiting is difficult.
At work lately, I’ve had IT issues literally every day after receiving my new computer. It’s no one’s fault and I wouldn’t place blame. It’s just a frustrating position to be in at a crucial time of the year… aka, FISCAL YEAR-END.
I’m a patient person most of the time. I’m especially patient at work because HELLO… professionalism.
I feel like it’s a Christmas wish to just have my computer program work properly. I want to save things without it taking 10 minutes to do so (okay, it’s five as long as it doesn’t crash my program *shrug*), or to jump through hoops (or folders..) to save such things, among other items on my want list. I want to be efficient more importantly.
I have no choice but to wait. No choice but to deal with it. No choice but to be patient, kind and considerate of the other issues our IT department probably has.
Again, not the time for this to happen, yet it’s here and we must all persevere and make the most of what we have.
This is a small inconvenience and a relatively short waiting period compared to many to most situations. It’s my current daily struggle though and an important lesson we need every once in a while (or every day).
Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.Ephesians 4:2
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.Philippians 4:6
Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.Romans 12:12
Has your patience been tested already this week??
