”When we see no hint of success yet refuse to despair, when we see nothing but the darkness of the night through our window yet keep the shutters open because stars may appear in the sky, when we have an empty place in our heart yet will not allow it to be filled with anything less than God’s best—that is the greatest kind of patience in the universe.
—George Matheson, Streams in the Desert
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. —Romans 12:12, NIV

I love that picture! I can see a reflection in each of the water drops.
Being patient is so hard for me. God is teaching me that impatience is actually a lack of trust that he’s in control.
Thank you. Waiting is hard for most of us. We want instant gratification. Yes…our impatience is a lack of trust in God’s sovereignty. Thanks for the reminder.
