I have always considered myself to be a very patient person. This skill has been challenged lately as I am trying to grow closer to God and the perfect plan He has for my life. Listening to God can be really difficult. He can give you answers and guidance in so many ways-if you are willing to be patient and listen. I know at times when I am faced with a decision I will open my Bible and try to find a verse that relates to my particular situation…This results in using verses out of context to fit MY wants rather that what the LORD wants for me. God has a perfect plan for each of us. Our worldly wants and desires are not always what God wants for us, rather, He has a plan far better than we can even imagine. Having faith in this and patiently waiting for it to unfold is the hardest part.
I am a planner. I like to have everything organized and planned out before it happens so I know the event will take place smoothly. Not knowing certain aspects of my life make me confused at times, but giving these worries to God takes the question out of the situation and increases my faith.
“As for God, His way is perfect.” – Psalm 18:30
