What does patience mean to you?
Here’s some things that I try to remind myself when I start to feel impatient:
- I count to ten.
- I walk away to prevent me losing your temper.
- Taking a timeout when I feel I’m struggling to be patient.
- I remind myself that that not everyone understanding things in the same way I do. Therefore others may need more time to fully understand something – and that may mean going over the same things with them numerous times.
- Remember I’m a perfectionist and none of us are perfect!
Do you have any hints or tips on how to keep your patience?
God is always patient, and so we must trust Him to fulfil His promise and answer our prayers, even when that means we need to remain patient for longer.
