Patience is something we all have dealt with at some point in our lives. Some people are better than others at mastering the skills necessary to harness it. Kids tend to want to get older faster and adults often wish for their younger days. The Bible gives us over 70 instances of being patient.
Life is a journey and an adventure! With Jesus as our Lord and Savior our destination is Heaven. You’ve heard of the phrase, “Stop and smell the roses.” Indeed, use the senses God gave you to explore, learn and grow. Do not rush life along, ever corner has something for us to learn. Please do not misunderstand, I am not saying life will always be good, if fact life can be very difficult at times. But it is through those experiences that we learn. How would you recognize a good job from a bad one if not for experience. Knowledge is power and all knowledge is useful. When we rush things along, especially when we are unprepared, we create difficulties for ourselves. If you care about something allow it to grow. Have you ever planted a garden or had house plants? They take immense tending and patience. Patience can be applied to all aspects of our lives; friendship, dating, colleges, buying a home, purchasing a car, having children…the list goes on and on.
Waiting and patience are not exactly the same thing. Patience should not be a lazy noun, being patient is collecting data, experiencing feelings and exploring your senses. Waiting should not be a lazy verb. If we only wait expecting God to send us a postcard with instruction,we will likely be waiting for a very long time.
“Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but one who has a hasty temper exalts folly.”
