Value Of Being Patient

Updated on March 3, 2011

Patience Is A Virtue

As the saying goes, patience is a virtue, and I'm really being taught that at this point in my life. There are certain things that I really want, and I'm learning that I simply have to be patient. It's so hard when you really want something and you know that you have to wait for it! You want it when you want it, how you want it, and can't understand if it doesn't happen that way. Sometimes no matter how we feel about it or what we think, God may have a different plan. He might have something totally different in store for us, or He might not think that we're ready yet and just wants us to wait on Him and be patient, there might be something else we need to learn or experience before He blesses us. So I've learned to pray the serenity prayer and put it to use. I'm trying to accept the things that I can't change and making an effort to change the things that I can, everything thing else is in God's hands. The number one thing helping me through this time is prayer. This transitional time isn't easy, but I'm gonna keep on praying, waiting, and thanking God in advance for my breakthrough. So when I see the red light I'm gonna be still, when I see the yellow light I'll wait, and when I see the green light it's full steam ahead!!! I thank God for all my blessings, seen and unseen, big and small, and all that are on the way...

      Amen to this. I have learned that if you pray that prayer once in earnest, and let it go, you will get what you asked for. Next time you pray, write it down the day that you prayed. Pray some more if you want to, but always refer back to that specific day of that original prayer. So when it comes to fruition, you can look back and see the blessing, and the timeline. And you can compare that timeline to what has been going on with you until your prayer has been answered, and then you will be able to testify for yourself why things are done in God's time and not your own time.

      Good Hub, Sis!
