Day 1 of 5: Five Days of Patience
I just recently downloaded these free reading plans from my Olive Tree bible (installed in my phone) and it included 5 Days of Patience. Mind you, a LOT of people I know personally would agree I need to read this first. Ha.
So here's the first part of the scripture reading for Day 1:
"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." (James 1:2-4)
Ok. Simply put, it says I should be happy and feel blessed that I'm being tested. Tested in ways that I should really call on the Lord to either ask for help, entrust everything to Him, or just tell Him what on earth I think is happening -- just talking, like talking to my very own dad or mom or husband or best friend -- while not really pushing for what I want but just trusting, having faith, that for whatever the results of these things are, whether His answer is a big yes, an annoying no, or an agonizing not yet, I should rest on the fact that the answer He shall give me IS the best for me and that it shall render me content and happy in the end.
So there. Day 1. Four more days. Now I'm thinking I should have started this four days ago. Haha. ;)
