I am Surprised Jehovah is So

god is compassionate

 But is [extraordinarily] patient toward you ” 2 Peter 3:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am surprised Jehovah is so patient with me.

Year after year I make stupid mistakes. Year after year I fight with Him when He asks me to do something I do not want to do.

Year after years I fight with Him when He tells me not to do something I want to do.

Instead of exhaustively shaking His head and says:Oh Joseph,Oh Joseph, Oh Joseph, how long must you be so obstinate?

He says: “ I know you have a heart dedicated to me and that you are a weak fleshling but do not worry I am a patient, loving, forgiving Father. I know you are a good son whose ultimate desire is to love and obey me. Just keep trying son, we are walking this life together through both your failures and your victories.”

Our ground of hope is that God does not weary of mankind.” — Ralph W. Sockman

Oh wow, what a truly awesome God I love. I deeply desire to be like Him towards others as He is towards me.

Don’t you?

“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” — John Quincy Adams

Prayer: Oh praise You my Beloved Jehovah EL RACHUM (Jehovah is a Merciful God ) Jehovah EL NASA (Forgiving God) for being so merciful and patient with this difficult child of Yours. Please bless me with the same mercy and love towards others todays as You have towards me every day. I humbly beseech You in the name of He whose great love for me lead Him to patiently endure the torturous cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace 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 feel the same way about me. Then I remember He tells me that it’s His goodness and patience with us that keeps bringing me to repentance. And it does!

    • Bravo for you.
      He uses reasoning and logic with me.
      He knows how to deal with us individually rather than in groups. He is truly a marvelous Father.
