My Mimi wouldn't let me be... I had promised her earlier in the week that we'd go for lunch at nandos on Saturday. But I caught the flu and was just recovering Saturday morning and I didn't feel up to going out.
I tried to bargain with her: let's stay home today, I'll send for McDonald's (which she loves) and then next weekend we'll go to Nandos.
Baby girl wailed ... I couldn't believe she would pass off a chance for an extra treat. 
And so I got my woozy feeling self up and went to Nandos.

It got me thinking how sometimes God wants us to wait... Not because He's going to deny us, but because there's one or two things He wants us to catch before we get there, things that'll help us mature/sustain/help us thrive at the destination... But we get so impatient with Him and refuse to wait... We insist on having our way.

I've realised that for every time God has asked me to wait... Even in my impatience, I've seen Him throw McDonald's here and there in the waiting mix. There's always sprinkles and even showers of blessings in the waiting room.

The only reason you haven't noticed the blessings as you wait is because you're so focused on what isn't happening now, that you fail to see that He hasn't left you helpless. And those little blessings in the waiting room count for so much when you finally get to the destination/promise. Those blessings help you see things differently... Help you manage your destination well because character to sustain you/help you thrive at the top is formed amongst many other things.
