Being Inspired…

Today’s Blogging 101 assignment was to expand on a comment left on a fellow blogger’s post. I’m inspired by https://chasing4jesus.wordpress.com and https://seekingsamantha.wordpress.com/2015/01/11/a-little-love-would-have-been-nice to write a little on patience…

Patience is truly a gift, one that I haven’t always activated when I should have. We want what we want when we want it because it’s all about us, right? I get mad at myself when, for example, I beep my car horn (well, more like BEEEEEP) at a driver not paying attention to the just-turned-green light. Was my BEEEEEEP really necessary? Or blowing my breath and rolling my eyes at the person in front of me in the line at the grocery store who doesn’t have enough cash, or an expired credit card, with five screaming children running all around… Why not offer to help instead?

Even here in Blog Land, trying to figure out what to say, how all the tools and widgets and links work, wondering who’s reading and who cares can be daunting. We want success and “it all figured out” from post one.

When things and life are left in God’s hands, everything will happen with divine perfection. There’s no need to worry. Be sure to embrace and receive the day’s assignment, and act with kindness, gentleness, and respect. Take a few deep breaths, choose your words before you speak, and look for the opportunity to serve the Lord. Serving Him, after all, is waiting in Him. Being… patient.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭28‬ KJV)

  1. Patience is really a skill we all need to hone. I have four sisters, so i’ve gotten pretty good at it (haha) but i still need to improve. Like you said, there is little point in getting mad at people while driving/in line at the store. Just take a breath and enjoy life 🙂 great post!

  2. I like that you called yourself out on the horn beeping without dwelling on it, instead using it as a way to get to pondering patience. Enjoyed the humor in it, the lesson, and the quote.
