After 2 Peter 3:9

We wait on a promise,

a promise to be fulfilled,

a promise spoken and

unspoken from

the beginning. Waiting

is not an acceptable word

in our vocabularies. Yes,

we believe. Of course,

we believe. But can’t it

happen now? The years

become decades, become

centuries, become 

millennia, and yes, we

believe, but when, when

will it be time? We don’t

understand why it’s so

slow, why it takes so long,

almost as if you want all

to be saved, none to perish,

all to repent, none to be 

left behind, all to be

embraced, all to walk

in the light.

The Lord seems to be in no hurry, Glynn, does He? His loving kindness abounds with patience.
