Patience is a virtue. It is also included in the fruit of the Spirit. Alas, today I am not very virtuous and someone has plucked it from my fruit bowl!
My daughter and I are in San Antonio at my sisters and we are waiting on a television to be delivered. We have been waiting since 8:00 a.m. this morning. It is now 3:36 p.m. to be precise. Apparently the delivery guys do not care that we had plans. Sharon had to leave to pick up her son Connor from school. My daughter saw an opportunity to get out of the house. Someone had to stay behind. I am that someone.
Today really hasn't been that bad. Sharon has baked yummy treats all day long and I sat on the couch and smelled them. I even got to lick the bowl. And I spent some much needed time in Bible Study.
Proverbs 19:11 says that a man's wisdom gives him patience. God pointed out to me that my impatience sometimes impedes God's plan for me. I want to help God out, hurry things along. That sometimes I just need to patiently wait on His timing. Sometimes waiting on God is just what I need to show me that God is always on time. And when I am impatient it hinders my ability to be still and know God and hear His voice. I needed this lesson in patience today.
Life is Good,
