Traffic delays. Long commutes. Endless lines. We often consider the time we spend waiting for something as time wasted. But it doesn’t have to be a waste.
The saints tell us to humbly and patiently accept the things that come to us from moment to moment as part of the providence of God. Those moments that make up this gift called life are our opportunities to grow in holiness. One day we will have to give an account for how we spent each of them, including how we spent our time waiting for something else. Can we redeem this “wasted” time and give it back to God?
