Waiting for one’s meal

A certain man walked into a hotel and after going through the menu, ordered some food. After about 20 minutes, a group of guys walked in and ordered for their food too.

To the dismay of the man, these guys got served first. He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily and one of them bragged about how he knew everyone at the hotel and how things moved fast for him there. 

The man contemplated leaving. But he had waited so long. Unable to take it anymore, he called the waiter.

The waiter calmly told him: “Yours, Sir, is a special order, being prepared by the Chief Chef himself with others, while the other order was prepared hurriedly by students on attachment because the top chefs are busy with yours. That’s why their food came first. Please have some fruit juice as you wait.”

The main calmed down and waited. Shortly after, his meal was served by six waiters.

Unknown to him, the owner of the hotel who happened to be a long-lost friend of his, had seen him coming in and wanted to surprise him and had made changes to his simple meal to make it a 5-star meal.

The party at the other table were surprised and couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly, they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of meal and service.

That’s with this life as well! Some people are ahead of you and enjoying now, boasting about how they know people, how they are well connected and how they’re blessed, and how they’re on top of the world, enjoying because of it.

You have been waiting long wondering why it’s taking so long to get your breakthrough, enduring mockery and humiliation. May be, you have gone through depression or suffered mental anxiety.

Do not worry!

The owner of the World knows you and doesn’t want to give you a simple meal like those served fast. You’re waiting long because yours is a special meal. It takes time to prepare. And only Chief Chefs prepare them.

Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes, those who need to, will be silenced.
