Learning to be Patient

I have spent a lot of time in prayer lately asking God to show me what I need to work on the most and he keeps telling me “patience”. So my word of the year for 2019 is patience. I am going to spend the year learning to be patient.

I have never been a very patient person. I have always had that I want it right now instant gratification attitude, but I know with God’s help I can over come this short coming in my life.


With my fibromyalgia, sleep apnea and insomnia the doctors keep telling me “you have to give it time”. That is so hard to accept for an impatient person. I feel like I have been waiting since spring to figure out what is wrong with me and now that we know I want to feel better now. Hopefully I will understand their is a reason I am going through all this struggle with my health and if I learn to be patient then God will show me why.

To start off my year of learning to be patient the verse-a-day challenge for January is on patience. I am planning to do a video each day to read the verse and talk about what it means to me. My plan is to do it on Instagram and Facebook stories. Please be patient with me though because with my health somedays I struggle to do anything still. But I know with God’s help I will be able to do it everyday if not at first but with time.
