I am a very impatient person. Most of the time it seems I need instant gratification. God and I lock horns on occasion. It's more than I would like to admit. I would love to be in denial about this, but I can no longer do such a thing. I must let the truth set me free. I want God to heal my body completely. I would love for God to give me the inner desires of my heart of which He already knows. I spoke with a friend recently who shared a song with me that spoke to my heart. It's called "I'll Wait" by the Katinas. There is a lyric in that song that says: "I've found a peace in being still if that's Your Will."
This is quite a statement of faith. I need to let and let God, if I am to regain my peace of mind. I need to wait no matter how painful that may be. The Book of James says: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. I need my faith to be tested so it may produce perseverance. With every struggle and each day I wait, I am getting an allotment of perseverance which is much needed. I shall persevere and thrive. It is my sincere hope that you dear readers will as well.
