Take time to memorise
This month, memorise a chunk of Scripture: perhaps a Psalm or a favourite chapter of a New Testament epistle. This kind of engagement with the Bible is not easy, nor does it give instant results, but it’s very worthwhile. Next time you’re stuck in a waiting room, or bored, instead of playing with your phone, begin to recite your memorised passage, mulling over it and meditating on the text. This simple activity turns ‘waiting’ into patience, submitting yourself to the limitations of dependency.
