As I enter another year, God willing, I have been reminded that patience is a virtue.
I have always been an impatient person. As a child, whenever I tried to rush things along, my father would simply say, “Remember, patience is a virtue.” That statement frustrated me to no end! As a mother, I have become quite patient in most situations with my children, with the operative word being most. I used to be such an impatient driver, but having children in the car with me has nipped that in the bud, and rightfully so.
In relationships, I have been impatient with love. When I love a man, my love knows no limits. It is far-reaching, constant, and unconditional. I can’t turn it on and off; however, I have mentioned that I can stow it away in a box, when necessary. Here I am, “in my feelings”, as my love interest would say, and I’m finding myself at a loss for words. Simply put – I’m feeling so very impatient, at the present time. When I love, I want to proclaim it.
Yet, here I am, being reminded that patience is a virtue. Lord, bless me with the wisdom to know how to hold my peace, bridle my tongue, and sit tight while You bless me.
