We're in a hurry, but God is not!!

The passage that I am about to share with you is so very true. The world has become such a fast pace place that we often forget to cherish things, take our time, grow slowly, laugh loudly, enjoy the purity of God's work. We're always so caught up in trying to live our dreams and make them happen overnight that we forget to live....we forget to consult God who has given us that dream.
I found the below passage to be soooooooo very true and I just had to share it with you.
Be blessed today and take time to live. Why are we always such in a rush? God isn't....
Joyce Meyer – New Day New You


We never learn patience without something to be patient about. Patience is something that has to be worked in us-it doesn’t just appear. The fruit of patience is in our spirits, because as children of God, the Holy Spirit is resident within us.

But for patience to be expressed through our souls (our mind, will and emotions), a work must be done in us. Once the prescribed time of waiting for the birth of each of my children had passed, I tried everything imaginable to bring on labor. I walked, took castor oil, worked harder than usual, hoping it would help ‘speed things up.’ With one of them, I even went into the hospital so the doctor would induce labor. It didn’t work; I was sent home. The doctor basically said, ‘Go home and let nature take its course.’

My advice to you from the Word of God and from my experience in life is, ‘Don’t be in such a big hurry.’ You may be full of dreams for your life, but you may also be trying to achieve your dreams out of season. We can make huge messes in our lives and sometimes get upset with God because things didn’t work out the way we thought the Lord said they would. Things will happen as God said if we wait on His timing. We are the ones in a hurry. God is not in a hurry!

Stay busy delighting yourself in the Lord, and let Him give you what He wants you to have. If God has placed the desire in you, you can be assured that He will bring it to birth in the right season. Wait on God for direction and instruction on how to proceed, do what He tells you or shows you, don’t go beyond that.
