When I was thinking about the post's title, I started to call it patience. However, I must draw you in with the truth, and patience is not easy. Anyone who has ever had their patience tested knows it will make you blow a head gasket (figuratively speaking, of course). Nevertheless, to some, it seems relatively easy. Well, some get frustrated, vent, and overthink the process. Some people begin to lose hope and doubt. The rational thought is that all you can do is wait it out.
Our patience is tested constantly throughout the day. Your patience is tested during a marriage, your children, job, family members, or daily interactions with others. Testing your patience can come from emails, general mail pertaining to business, or bills. You are tested at church, in social organizations, and hobbies. Even your faith can test your patience. Don't you think your patience is being tested when you await a blessing or an answer to your prayer?
Are you waiting for something right now from God, and you are sitting in frustration? Have your found yourself asking God every day where it is? Have your found yourself asking God how much longer? Have you asked God whether the time is now?
Some people have borderline run out of patience waiting on God if they tell the truth. If they didn't, they would not ask the question; they would solely trust Him.
When you have patience, you are less stressed. When you have patience, you are not worried. When you have patience, you are trusting God. Patience is not easy, but the outcome of having it is worth more than gold.
**Friendly reminder, we are in August; let's not forget to select one day you will fast from 8-12 noon. Also, please do not forget to save. This is our financial fast, and faith without work is dead. Amen? Amen!
