Today everything is rush,
rush, rush, do it now! Fix it fast,
instantly. There is no patience. Even on the highways and byways. Road rage. We all should have patience. It is one of the fruit of the Spirit.
When we go through trials and
tribulations, we have to have patience. We all will have trials and tribulations; it is a part of life.
When I was on my walker, I
had to learn the meaning of depending on people because I was raised to depend
on no man, only God and yourself. I had
long-suffering. My patience helped me
learn to lean on God. Asking people to
open doors for me made me put my pride aside. Thanking people and saying thank you was too much for me. My prayers daily was to help me put my pride
aside to even having people make my bed.
I felt I had to pay some them
kind of way. I didn?t have the money I
needed to pay them, so I offered or gave them something they needed or
wanted. I felt I had to do something for
My long-suffering with my
patience let me know there is a lot that goes with it.
The joy I have now is a joy I
cannot measure! I can walk without my
walker or my cane. God has taken the
pride from me. I now have no problem
asking people to do anything for me that I used to do for myself.
