Patience is a talent…..
|Take a drive down Patience street...|
To say be patient is so cliché isn’t it.To achieve anything great you must be steadfast and be able to exercise patience.It’s probably once of the most under valued qualities of successful people spoken about.Even in my personal experience its been times when I thought things should have went a certain way at a certain time but didn’t and I couldn’t figure out why.
Sometimes God’s clock is the clock we need to go by,not our own.Sometimes things are not all lined up to make every door or opportunity open.During your times of learning patience prepare diligently.Waste no time in downtime.When opportunity does appear and you’re not ready it will only make a fool out you.
First of all define what makes you impatient .Usually your expectations let you down.So lower your expectations of time,people and results.Still expect the best but be aware of things change and conditions change without warning.To show patience is a level of maturity and a wise person.Learn to tolerate things that seem untolerable.Try to look at things in a new way.The results are amazing sometimes.People and the universe will reward you for your efforts.Don’t get me wrong though it is a learned behavior and skill and will take some effort on your part.
While you’re being patience find out what else you can be catching up on or getting ahead on.
There is always something you can catch up on or take care while waiting.
Things can happen or change in the blink of an eye.Even if you’re taking baby steps towards goals eventually you’ll get there.How could you not?Only if you stop moving.Time plus effort equals results.To minimize time maximize effort.Make your moves and effort more calculated and efficient. Keep your head down,keep grinding .When it’s time to look up ,you’ll know.You’ll just feel it.
It’s not about waiting,it’s about having a positive and the right attitude while waiting on something to manifest.While your working on it of course.
“Timing is so important! If you are going to be successful in dance, you must be able to respond to rhythm and timing. It’s the same in the Spirit. People who don’t understand God’s timing can become spiritually spastic, trying to make the right things happen at the wrong time. They don’t get His rhythm – and everyone can tell they are out of step. They birth things prematurely, threatening the very lives of their God-given dreams.” ~ T. D. Jakes
“The times we find ourselves having to wait on others may be the perfect opportunities to train ourselves to wait on the Lord.” ~ Joni Eareckson Tada
