There are many problems that cannot be solved by thinking our way through them.
No amount of reason, creativity, or worry will solve them.
Sometimes the only solution is patience.
This is not easy, however, especially for those of us who are internally driven to action.
Waiting can feel like torture when we desperately want, or even need, to try to solve whatever problem we are faced with.
But, when nothing can be done, we must make our home in the waiting.
We must embrace the need to be patient and become comfortable there.
This is neither careless nor is it lazy.
Patience is not apathy or sloth.
Patience requires discipline and effort.
In fact, more often than not, patience requires faith.
