I know that patience is a virtue, but this happens to be something that I really struggle with. Growing up I was always the one telling people to "hurry up" and "let's go." You know when life presents you with a change, and you know its going to happen, and you just have to wait? That is how I feel now. I hate knowing that I am going to move and be in my old branch but having to wait for it to happen. This is small in comparison with other things I have had to wait for. It seems like the Lord has really been trying my patience lately. To wait for almost a year for one particular thing sounds like a real trial in patience, but then to have that particular event never come to pass is the ultimate try of my patience. I wish that I had just developed this virtue on my own. If I had I may have spared myself a year of waiting in vain for something that would never happen.
