Patience

Someone I love is going through a challenge and I want to help!  Since I have contacts, it seems natural to help get this done.  Also, there are financial resources needed and I feel I can make the needed phone calls.  Then, as I quieten my thoughts in prayer, it comes to me to slow down and turn wholeheartedly to God.  Certainly I will take human footsteps as I am led, but I needn’t yield to human will, but to God.  My heart overflows with gratitude to witness my own growth.

There was a time when I would have gotten  the job done one way or another, but by willful force.  My gratitude is that I now realize I don’t know the spiritual growth this person needs and God is always on the job and I trust Him implicitly.  Have been praying with 1 Thessalonians 5:18 which reads “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
