I know, w’re not supposed to hate but I would do anything to avoid lineups. I have been on both sides of lineups. For many years, I worked as a travel consultant and manager of a travel agency. There were times when we were extremely busy and I would be aware of customers fidgeting as they waited to be served. This would but added pressure on me and my staff. I would always look for ways to keep the waiting customers happy.
I would search for the shortest lineups,while banking or at the supermarket. When driving to and from work or on business around town, I would always look ahead for shortcuts.
To be truthful..lineups “stressed me out.”
A number of years ago I made some changes and decided to pray silently, for the people in front of me and for those who were serving. It helped me relax and appreciate people.
Yes, there are times I forget and return to my old ways but just writing this post has helped reinforce my desire to overcome my hatred of lineups.
Where I am, at any moment, is where God can speak o me or use me to bless others.
