"my dream is to live a good life, to be close to God and be a good human being."
There are two types of waiting. There’s the the waiting you do for something you know is coming, sooner or later—like waiting for the 6:28 train, or the school bus, or a party where a certain handsome boy might be. And then there’s the waiting for something you don’t know is coming. You don’t even know what it is exactly, but you’re hoping for it. You’re imagining it and living your life for it. That’s the kind of waiting that makes a fist in your heart.
Everything that will make your life better is unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and mildly terrifying. In those moments we cling to God more than ever, and we discover that the journey does as much for us as the destination.
