Patience! What I need to reach out and grab today! My computer is super slow because we are out of data. You know how it goes, the speed is dropped and it takes forever to load anything :/
My heart is saying, really, why today! I have things to do and no time for this! I am reminded that I am often impatient with many things. Impatience’s can soon turn to anger if not kept in check! I am stopping and checking myself. I am taking my thoughts captive and making them obedient to Christ. . I wish I could say I stop myself like this in every frustrating situation I find myself. The situation I find myself in right now is one that really shows a heart that is not content. It is only a computer. What if this were my husband, my child, or any human being that got in my way today? I have to admit I do get impatient and frustrated at the above people. . I am going to look at slow computer speed as a teaching moment from God. I am not upset about the data now. I stopped and thought about how immature my thoughts are. Only by the grace of God given through Jesus Christ could I understand that my impatience is a fruit of the flesh and so trivial. In this moment I am turning my frustration to praise and Thanksgiving! Not because I am happy to be frustrated but I am thankful for the Holy Spirit of God that prompted me to see and understand how my sinful thoughts can turn into sinful action! Praise God today for the fruit of the Spirit!!!
