James 1:4 says, “Perseverance must finish it’s work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” Perseverance is not one of my strongest traits! How about you? We live in a world where we want everything now. We do not want to wait on anything. Traffic drives me crazy. I want to get from point A to point B as fast as possible. I don’t have time to wait. The weekend seems like it will never get here and I find myself wishing my days away! I pray for the anointing of the Lord to reach 1000’s of people for Christ and sometimes I find myself becoming very frustrated. Perseverance does take its time!
Here is the prayer I prayed this morning. I have never in my life prayed this prayer. Lord, take your time!! Take your time with me and help me to be all that you want me to be. Lord, make me content in the place you have me. Help me not to wish my days away but to live every day with purpose and passion. Slow me down to enjoy friendship and take no opportunity for granted. Lord, I still pray for that anointing but I realize You don’t have that much to work with.😜
Take your time Lord! Help me to enjoy the process of becoming more like you.
