Living Life Patiently

I think demonstrating patience is one of my biggest weaknesses. There are quite a few instances where I can grow tired of waiting. & I know that I am not the only one that struggles with being patient. Our society lives for instant gratification. But, you know what I realized in all of the times I’ve had to wait? That I am practicing patience and in doing so it has strengthened my character and mindset.

There’s a reason why God usually makes us wait. When I get easily angered in my seasons of waiting, I take a step back & think, what has having to wait taught me so far? Take it as an opportunity to learn, grow and enhance your faith, who you are and other parts of your life. I would encourage you to seek God when becoming impatient. Don’t rely on yourself alone. Patience takes time to develop and a lifetime of practice.

Romans 12:12

“Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times.”
