Patience

It’s hard to even write that word-patience. That is what God has been teaching me over the last 6 months. I feel that I have been really learning but lately it’s been worse. This last month, almost everything I did had me waiting. Even yesterday, when I was so sick-I had to wait 2 1/2 hours at the doctors office. Then when I went to pick up my prescription I had to wait another 45 minutes. There are a few other instances just recently that have happened that are just too personal to share. But I have to wonder why. I read this in my morning quiet time today:

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” Hebrews 10:36

And what I got out of that is that even though it;s hard to keep going when I feel such resistance. I have to keep moving. You know when you are walking in the ocean against the current? That’s what I feel like. But I have to step back and remember these two things -“Be still and know that I am God” and “I can everything through him who gives me strength”. So, I share this with you today so that you will know what I am struggling with. I ask for your prayers. There are a lot of unspoken prayer requests here too.

Thanks in advance for your prayers πŸ™‚
