Musings 8, The Waiting Room

August 9, 2017

Waiting has become so necessary that many offices and businesses offer a place to wait. Shopping centers court attention by providing comfortable places for customers or their companions to wait.

I watch a couple strolling down the busy streets of Balboa Island, a small island between the ocean and the bay beset with tourists. She is occupied looking into shop windows while he is scanning the curbside for places to sit and wait. Ah, he must have thought, a bench at last. She finds a shop in which to browse, while he waits patiently, in some degree of comfort.

I like the waiting room in one doctor’s office. He provides a TV with videos of health information. Lest I have forgotten, I am reminded to eat healthy foods and exercise. My book lies forgotten. Usually he keeps close to his schedule, reducing the waiting time.

We all have reasons to wait, and a waiting room or a well placed bench is a good use of space. God does not say we must be uncomfortable while we wait.

(Psalm 27: 14) Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thy heart.

(Joshua 1: 9) Be strong and of good courage, for the Lord is with you wherever you go.

(Hebrew 6: 15) Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised.
