Patience. That’s something that needs to be given to others as well as yourself. Today, as I was going through my day, I encountered a few things that pulled at my patience. So what did I do? I pulled on God. Why? Because He reminded me how to offer patience. There are moments when I push His EVERY button. I fail to listen. I throw temper tantrums. I ignore Him. But in all of that, He’s STILL patient with me. So as I went through my day, He helped me deal with myself by reminding me of how He deals with me. In the end it was a success. And I offered myself patience that I needed.
Peace and patience have this in common… They are both from God. Getting strength to do all things will take them working together. Peace is given when you think on things that are noble, true, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. Patience is given when you go through a trial or storm. You will have the patience within the storm as you are pulling on peace. So now that you are thinking heavenly thoughts, you have the strength to do all things through Christ. So if you are having trouble making it through a rough path in life, it may be due to what you are thinking about and pulling on. If you’re depending on yourself to bring you through, you are going to remain in the situation. Pull on God and remain content even in the season you are in. He will bring you through with more power, grace, and strength.
Be still and know that He is God.
Rest in Him.
Now, have a peaceful slumber. #Goodnight
Now have a peaceful day. #TopOfTheMorningToYou
Lately I’ve had the joy of enjoying an almost 30 min drive to work. I don’t mind the drive most days, because this is normally a quiet moment to commune with Christ. Well, today was no different than what seems like every other day. I turn the music off and just think, worship, talk, pray, or simply take the view in.
As I was thinking, God began to speak. We started to have a conversation about maturity. Because we never stop growing in Him, right?!
So, after a long day I knew I needed more quiet time with Him and His word (Bible). I had no idea what I was going to read, but the Holy Spirit placed Ephesians 4 in my spirit.
And what was it about?? Maturity!
I ask that you read and let the Lord speak to you. Let us grow in Him. Let our daily walk align with His word.
Be blessed. Be encouraged.
I think I’m getting the hang of this.
I think I’m getting over my “I want what I want when I want it” attitude.
Oh boy. More prayer is needed.
