A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Wait For His Timing

8 Comments


God is already there.

That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;  strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;  giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. Colossians 1:10-12New King James Version

Patience is not my forte.

It is not necessarily that I want it know but rather that many times with Jehovah it has taken Him years where as I only want it to take weeks.

There are so many times I was frustrated and wanted to quit but prayed for the strength to continue on. Jehovah has always abundantly provided it for me.

There has been numerous times I have tried so hard only to fail in trying to perfect myself.

Like a patient Father Jehovah lifts me up and gently continues to guide me on my way

When I reflect back on my walk with Christ I must confess I was a bit arrogant and impatient in becoming one of His children. It is a lifetime process.

Even now after many decades I find myself impatient at times.

I can think of when Jehovah revealed to me when He wanted me to do something and I wanted to start right away. Thankfully I waited for His timing (I learned that the hard way) and it has happened a year from when He showed me the task He had prepared fro me to do.

“Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them every day begin the task anew.” Francois de Sales

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hosanna (God is my maker) for being so patient with me in burning off the dross of my life while guiding me to the tasks You have predestined for me to accomplish for You with Your magnificent help. I laud You in the name of He who always did things You way in Your time Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. I think we are all a bit, or a lot impatient. We forget what you said that growing is a life long process. We would like it all now. 👍

  2. Thank you for reminding us that knowing ourselves and our loving Saviour is a lifetime process
