This week’s word prompt from minute Friday is patience. To find out more and join the fun click here: https://fiveminutefriday.com/
Patience is far from my strong point. I certainly don’t suffer fools gladly and easily get frustrated. I spend a lot of time in repentance for name calling idiots! God is patient with me and knows I’m a work in progress. That I know, doesn’t mean it’s right.
I’m finding social media more and more unhelpful. People showing their real colours in their times of desperation.
But we have only just started and desperation will only increase. We are only being asked to stay inside. We are not being held at gunpoint, or having to surrender luxuries. We still have food and family, however far away.
As a family we have struggled for years financially. This has led us to budgeting and surving on a make do and mend mentality.
We had to spend years saying no to social engagements with friends, not because we don’t want to come, but because we can’t.
I think this lifestyle and loving Jesus has made it easier for us to adapt in this time. We are still blessed beyond belief, with love, family & friends. We walk in freedom if not outside our homes.
We may not have as much to lose as others, like holidays, high powered jobs and dining out. But remember you are privilege & blessed to have that in the first place. It is harder to lose things the more you have.
But be patient these days will return.
Just as I need patience to accept that people are not idiots, just because I don’t agree with them, take patience that your lifestyle will be restored.
However while waiting I pray, that people will turn away from material worldly things and start searching for something more.
Something that questions mortality and morality and all these material things you seek?
