Recently, I was reminded that things happen in their own time. Even though we may want something to happen sooner, most everything has its own process.
Take healing for example. If I stub my toe, the pain may take only a few seconds for it to go away. If I nick my finger with a knife, however, there is more involved in the process of healing.
The cut may run a few layers deep into the skin and need a day to a week for complete healing. There’s also extra items needed to heal a cut compared to stubbing my toe. I may need some Neosporin, a bandage, and stitches if the cut went deep enough to warrant a trip to the hospital.
