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.
Are you worried?
Are you Gods child?
Do you believe in His Word?
Do you believe He will come through?
So I ask again, are you worried?
God has this wonderful thing that He does. He provides for His people. We are to trust Him and let Him handle the details. Worrying doesn’t add a single hour to your day. And let’s be honest, if we had a 25th hour, it would most likely be spent worrying too.
So what is it that you need God to do?
Ok, now what is it that you have to do?
You must first eliminate worry and focus on His Word (trust). Speak His Word over your life (faith). Seek Him (pray). After you have done this listen (direction). Move according to His instruction which is always a peaceful, stress free, worry free, trustful, and doubt free road to provision and promise.
Remember: God will be God

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
Just in case you don’t know, let me tell you …
I didn’t truly love and embrace Jessica until my relationship with Christ grew. So as I read this scripture, I’m reminded of some things that I once did. But like the scripture says, because I have Christ I am new. Now, don’t think for a minute that once I accepted Christ everything about about me changed right away. No. I had to reprogram.
No longer do I crave the attention
No longer do I thrive off compliments.
No longer do I struggle with low self esteem.
No longer do I live my life based on the opinions of others.
No longer do I desire to be a Jones.
No longer do I hide pain behind this smile.
No longer do I put myself down.
No longer a slave to “likes”.
No longer do I struggle with my worth.
So if act brand new, it’s only because I am. Now, I see myself through God’s eyes. And you know what? I’m pretty special.
