Hold Steady…

Rest in the Lord and wait Patiently for Him..Psalms 37:7

I remember vividly the time I decided to pray for patience… My children were young and of course I wanted to be the best mommy I could be, however I needed to work on my Patience and figured who would be better to help me than God!! Well you have heard the saying, don’t pray for patience or you better be ready for a big lesson. It seemed like the whole week God put some big obstacles in my path and I remember telling God Ok never mind NO more patience. I have since heard people say never pray for patience because God will oblige.

I am an impatient person by nature, I think we have all experienced this however. Haven’t we all prayed and prayed and then waited and waited for an answer? I have known others to say I just get tired of waiting! Perhaps we are not waiting in the right way? This thinking takes us out of the right place- the place where he can meet us if we are patient.

With Patience wait…. Romans 8:25

As I have gone back into the word I have descovered for me Patience can take away worry. God tells us in His word that He will come, and His promise is equal to his presence. What we ask for and wait on may not always be a yes, it may be a no, God has our best interest at heart.

Patience takes away weeping, I have weeped alot lately, at losing my mate. At times I feel sad and despondant, God tells me to wait, and be patient. I know God will not leave me or abandon me. His purpose for me waiting is to bring Glory out of the circustance. The work that Christ desires in me is that I trust Him and Believe in Him.

John 6:29 When you beieve, you may know that all is well..

There are many times in my life that I’m weak, and impatient. I’m learning in my daily walks and struggles that I simply must “Let Go and Let God” take my burdens. God’s foundation is firm and steadfast. When I let God’s patience overflow in me I can be content to wait, for in the waiting Patience gives way for me to be able to worship and praise the Lord in the victory’s. A praiseful Patience is the best part of it all.

Hold steady when the fires burn,
When inner lessons, come to learn
And from this path there seems no turn-
Let Patience have the perfect work.

In His Grip…..
