I am patient with myself and others.
Even with modern conveniences, some things cannot be rushed. The time it takes for babies to be born, flowers to bloom, or seconds to count down remains the same whether I am relaxing or anxiously watching a clock. When I find myself becoming impatient, I redirect myself toward a healthy, calm approach. My patience improves with practice. Being patient is a way of making peace with what is out of my control—a way of letting go—so God can work through me. I remind myself that people are usually doing the best they know how to do. Keeping in mind that we are all God’s children, I remain patient with myself and others.
Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.—1 Peter 3:8
