How I learned to wait

How I learned to wait

My children are one of the main ways God speaks to me these days - both through their tantrums and their pure and innocent hearts.  How many times have I fussed at God because he said "no" or "not yet," or in his kindness he protected me, but I viewed it as confining instead of a blessing?

I wonder how our relationship with the Father would change if we related to Him in the manner in which we're trying to teach our children to relate to us?  Acknowledging that He knows more than we do, coming to Him when we need help or when we messed up, accepting that when he asks us to wait that there is a loving purpose.
