Psalm 62 and learning how to Wait
Productive patience sounds like a contradiction. But in fact it is one of the hallmarks of faith. Productive patience isn’t passive resignation, its active trust.
I remember reading John Ortberg say somewhere that he intentionally will choose the longest line at the grocery store in order to force himself to learn patience. I also remember thinking at the time, “that is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.”
