Patience is everyone's biggest test. I must admit, this is something I struggle with on the regular. This isn't new to me at all. I ask God every single day to give me patience. And I'll tell you right now, my patience level is at ZERO. Very sad, I know. I tend to want things to happen on my time, but I have to remind myself that, that's not how it works. We usually make/create plans and all this is great because this keeps us on track and helps us to stay productive, but we get angry/upset when things don't go our way. Frankly, things won't always go our way.

We have to keep in mind that everything and everyone has a specific season + time in life. I also remind myself (daily) that I'm not in control, but God is. That is why I seek and put Him first in all that I do. And I encourage that you do the same. I need His guidance and His protection while on my journey. Even when it comes to decision making, no matter how big or small it may be, I go to Him first. I know that He has bigger, greater, and better plans for both you and I, so please, don't be discouraged. I just want to be the woman that He has called me to be. Self discipline and patience are our greatest weapons.

I pray that you're inspired and encouraged!
