In my blog post on the last day of 2012, where I reviewed how I got on with the aims I’d made at the start of 2012 (in My Aims 2012 – Review of the Year), I spoke about how I have tried (and failed often) to be more patient with others. So although I haven’t made patience a specific aim for this new year, I do intend to try to be more patient.
As patience is something I know many of us find difficult to attain and retain, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on patience with you today.
Did that feel like ages?
I don’t know about you, but I’m not really a very patient person. If someone is doing something for me, I expect it to be done now. If I get something new, I want to use it now. If someone does something wrong I get frustrated.
Maybe that’s why I find it so hard to wait for God‘s answers to my questions and my prayers!
…and yet I know God will always answer my prayers, maybe not today or tomorrow, maybe not in the way I wanted on expected, but He will answer them.
So why not join me today in pledging to be more patient, not just with others but also with God.
