Patience - Part 4

Some days I think I know everything. The very next day I feel like I don't know anything. Circumstances, people and emergencies try my patience to the very last nerve. When everything seems to be whirling out of control, I turn to the Scriptures.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. Lamentations 3:24-25


It's not about me. It's never been about me. Those words echo in my head once again. My hope and my patience lie in the Lord and His plan, not in the lusts of the flesh or the random thoughts of my human mind.


I have been blessed with enough up to this point to keep me content for the rest of my life. Impatience comes when we look ahead and take our focus off the moment. When we take ourselves out of the equation and look for God's purpose in each activity of the day, we won't have time to look forward with frustration.

There is no secret to developing patience - it's clearly explained in God's Word. Resting in the Lord and waiting on Him to set all the pieces in place is all it takes.It may sound simplistic, but women tend to make things harder than they really are.

In the upcoming days and weeks, I encourage you to seek the Lord instead of finding news ways to be content. There's nowhere you can go or anyone you can turn to besides God Himself that will grow your patience. Sit back, relax and get ready for God to do some miraculous work in your life once you give up the control.

And don't pray for patience...He'll only give you reasons to have to practice patience. Rest in the Lord instead. Trust Him and He'll be forever faithful.
