Wednesday's Word

I started something on my funny blog called Wednesday's word. I think I'm gonna start it here too. The basic jist is that I just take one word and post about its meaning to me. Today's word is patient.

Actual meaning - Capable of calmly awaiting an outcome or result; not hasty or impulsive.

Meaning to me - My dad's unwavering ability to wait for God's timing in things no matter how hard it may seem

Patience is a virtue they say. Unfortunately it's a virtue I need more of. It's not like I don't have a good example. I do. My dad has the patience of Job. Me, not so much!
I've been told that if I pray for more patience, I better watch out because the way to learn patience is through a trial.
James 1:3-4 talks about this, "3. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."
Trials mature us. They make us more patient. I've seen my dad go through some hard trials in his life, but he has always displayed patience no matter how hard the storm.
That is my goal. Maybe God will get through to this hard head one day and teach me!
How about you, what's your goal?

I use to tell my dad that God only made one mistake... not giving me patience! Dad said I needed to learn that on my on and I haven't mastered it yet.

I need loads of patience also. Another goal of mine is to be more outspoken about my faith; it's not that I'm ashamed or anything, it's just that sometimes I don't know how to broach the subject with unbelievers. It's also a goal of mine to expand on my spiritual gift (the gift of helping).

OOOHHH what a subject you picked. Yes I know from experience when you ask for patience, you will go through many of many trials to get it. I'm still trying to grasp it! It's something I need to work more on. Great post!!!

The good thing about praying for patience is that the answer is always Yes! :)

Had to laugh- I've always been terrified of that prayer for patience, having heard the "watch out" warning! Good word Heather. Linked to your blog on my blog finally!
