Obviously, God has a plan for each one of us. Sometimes we think that God is not leading us anywhere because nothing "spectacular" is happening. Well, maybe God just wants us to remain unknown and hidden. We must be patient and wait for the Lord to lead us. If we rush ahead, we'll end up wasting more time, and time is limited in our life. By the way, the saints regard patience as a sign of holiness.
In today's society, we're easily conditioned to go, go, go, so we don't hear God speak and his plan for us is set back. "No time to waste" doesn't mean that we hurry to do all kinds of things; it simply means we must seek and do God's will in the short lifetime we have.
