Being Patient


"See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains." James 5:7

Since my hernia operation, I've had to take things much slower until I reach full recovery. In the meantime, I can't drive; I can't do hard work; and I rest a lot. I have to be patient. But I'm learning that moving slower is not necessarily less productive. I've had time to some planning. We've received many visitors that we normally don't have time for. And other things just fall in place because it's God's timing and not mine. Faby works hard in the garden, but you can't rush the growth of a plant. It takes it's good ol' time, but the flower comes sooner or later. I'm still trying to see God at work every day and in everything. He has his perfect timing. We have to be patient, and when the time arrives "redeem it." (Eph 5:16)
