31 Days of Joy: Day 22 – Joy in Patience

I’ve been reading Guideposts’ “Morning’s With Jesus 2012.” I never finished it 2 years ago and for some reason felt compelled to pick it up again. In her October 21st devotion, Erin Keeley Marshall wrote the following:

“He [God] often shows extreme patience in sending His answer because He loves us too much to let us settle for an incomplete one.” 

Wow!  That was an eye-opener for me.

Both yesterday and today I kept this thought in the back of my mind.

I certainly see waiting for His answer in a new light and it brings me joy to know my gracious, loving heavenly Father loves me so much that He will not settle for answering a prayer half-way.

May you see patience in a new light and may Erin’s statement resonate with you and help you be more patient.
