Today I am thankful for God's patience. I am so slow sometimes to turn straight to God. In large situations (for example, my health scare last week), I tend to go straight to God. However, with the smaller things in life --the daily annoyances, bad day at work, etc -- it seems that I try to work them out myself, become frustrated and stressed. Only then, FINALLY, do I say "Here, God, it's yours."
I'm trying... I really am. Until I fully succeed, though, I'm going to continue to need that patience from God! And, I will continue to be thankful that He is patient with all His children!
