You guys pray for Brandon. He plays his first game tonight for the JV Baseball team. He is a freshman and probably won’t get to play much, but I told him to just ride it out, see what happens, and wait his turn. That’s the way things work at Muscle Shoals High School. As they get older, they play more. It’s a kind of waiting in line.
Life is kind of like that isn’t it. It seems that we are always waiting in line. We wait at the grocery store. We wait in line to get our hair cut. We wait to get an oil change. We wait at the restaurant. I told someone the other day that I was convinced that when we get to heaven, we will have to wait in line to get in. Anytime I say that I immediately think that it really doesn’t matter so long as I’m in that line!
Some people have had some great suggestions for ways to occupy your mind in lines. People pray, read, or just mess with other people. What are some ways you cope with lines that might be helpful to the rest of us?
