Instant Gratification

You aren’t going to find it here, sorry Sad smile.  Our world is about instant gratification, when we want something we get it, even if it’s not good for us.  How can we slow down and adopt the pace of Nature?

Beautiful things happen when we put patience into practice in every aspect of our life.  The opposite of patience is frustration, worry, and stress.  Let’s say our kids ask us for something and they nag, complain, talk to all of their friends about how miserable they are, would you still want to help them?  Think about that before you give anything to God! When you give something to God and you still stress, and worry are you really trusting Him?

When you put your trust in God – not yourself, not people around you – you will NEVER be disappointed!  You will begin to enjoy your life while God is solving your problems.  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5,6 . God always comes through and not always in the way we want but always better than we could ever imagine!  “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3:20  Isn’t that amazing, we can’t even imagine what He can do with our lives when we really TRUST HIM!  Even when we don’t get our way, right away…..patience!

Change takes time and nothing great comes over night but learn to appreciate the journey. Celebrate one small victory at a time, and learn from each defeat but never forget that each one of us is just a rock but with God we will surely shine brighter than the most beautiful diamond and all it requires is patience!

Love, Shannon
