  1. This has really prompted me to think about how in particular I’m impatient and what immediately sprung to mind was how I’m impatient to let things grow, like your illustration shows, and I want to buy success. Of course this leads to impatience with people and developing a consumer mentality there too.
    It’s something that’s being written on my heart more and more, how my consumer mentality leads to the abuse of others that’s not obvious, but it is there. It really does make you miss blessings. Thanks for a great and thought provoking post.

    1. Thank you, I hope you have found insight and resolve with what your heart is speaking to you.I don’t believe you are alone in what has been tugging on your heart for I believe we all at one time or another have or will struggle in this area.As long as we are willing to do self examinations,honestly dissecting ourselves, our behaviors ect I believe for myself at least I am then able to get to the root of what is causing something to be off kilter in different areas of my life by asking and examing the what’s,where’s and when’s because If it’s not uprooted the behavior will continue. In the last few days I have been tested in this area,I have read these passages before yet I had a heart felt experience in reading that Patience is showing God we trust him that sentence alone was a epiphany moment for me as I was writing the post.
