“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”–Joyce Meyer
Letting God do his work takes time. Patience allows God to see your faith, that you trust enough to allow your life’s destiny to open up as it should. When you lose hope because times get tough slows the progress.
We all struggle with patience because we want everything right now. Living in a world that wants us to believe now, now, now!
The struggle is we don’t see an outcome being positive quickly enough then our first instinct is to jump in the middle of something that needs time. Yes, you have to do the work, what’s necessary to move things along.
There is a difference in taking steps to realize a change, or forcing something that is not altogether ready to manifest. For example, a relationship you push too hard when you push someone away because you don’t give them the time and space to come to the same place you are.
Worse still is you merely give up. “Oh this is not going to work, or it would have by now.” The Universe will align the sun, the moon and the stars in your favor with Patience. Remember you cannot say I want a new job and then order a pizza and wait. You have to get out and do the work, look for a job, interview and keep chugging until you here “Welcome we want to hire you.”
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”–Muhammad Ali
Many days are like training. I hate every minute, but I keep pushing through. Following God on my mind, but not really feeling him present. Life can kick you in the gut, we can choose to fall apart or just keep moving.
Keeping moving somedays takes every ounce of my strength. As I am sure to not be the only person on this earth that struggles through. Let us say that most of us are kindred souls when it comes to living life.
Do not stall when life just seems like “really” can’t catch a damn break! Scream if you have to but say “I am NOT LOSING this time.” Fight, fight and fight through, you can do it. I do it most days you can too.
Tell the enemy NOT today asshole, you don’t get the satisfaction of bringing me down. Do this even if you don’t see hope. Fly on blind faith but fly. The reason that I am writing this article is today I am operating on blind faith. Many things have fallen apart, but I know that it’s a temporary problem.
The problem is I don’t believe that statement this moment, but what the hell else can I do but to keep moving forward. I can stop saying F’it. What would that do but make things worse!
So if I can do this so shall you! We all get hit with life that hurts. Instead of giving up work through it even when your mind and body are fighting you.
It’s only impossible if you think it is. Nothing is if you believe in your heart you can. You’re not too old, not too young, not enough education, not enough blah, blah, blah. You are if you BELIEVE YOU ARE!
Life takes work, life takes courage. Grab your courage and let’s GO.
If you don’t have belief in what you’re doing, then stagnation is the result you will achieve. We all must believe in our hearts that which we seek. Peace, prosperity, oneness, or any number of desires your heart has.
Learning to retrain our brain to see the outcome of our belief. Believe that what you desire is already apart of your life experience. Be grateful that you have it! Don’t worry about how to focus on the end game result. See in your mind’s eye that which you want. Be grateful for the wisdom, knowledge and open doors that are yet to come. Don’t let “I don’t have this or that; this will never work” attitude. Get the HOW out of your head. Doors will open in good time when we believe in what we do, work diligently daily towards that outcome of success.
