A Note From Pastor Dinger:
Our lives are a rush. We have more things to do and less time to do them. How many times do we get impatient? Impatient with stressed out TSA agents as you try to hurry through airport security. And then we all have times of impatience with God, demanding that he follows our timetable.
We ask, but nothing changes. We beg, but He keeps silent. We get tired and desperate, and we might want to quit. 
What would have happened if Noah had enough of waiting for the rain to come. Imagine how he might have felt after waiting 50 years of building the ark and no one had seen even a drop of rain. Everyone mocked him and God. What are you waiting for!?
What if Noah had said, “I’ve had enough of this! If You don’t bring rain right now and prove these mockers are wrong, I’m going to quit!” What if? God would still have brought His plan to pass in due time and Noah would have been unprepared.
There was a time when people waited for more than rain. People had been waiting for the Messiah for thousands of years. “But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeems those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” (Gal 4:4-5)
Today, though we scuttle here and there with our all-important lives and urgent needs, let us not forget that God has proven Himself through His Word and has accomplished our salvation in the fullness of time. And while it might not be on our schedule and our time - the Lord makes all things beautiful in His time.
