Dailies ~in His Word
June 8, 2019
Are you patiently waiting for someone to complete a task so that you can move ahead with yours? I have to say this scripture chided me today! I am so guilty of complaining to God about people not getting things done fast enough, and I am often the one slowing those same people down!
Sometimes we have to wait on the Lord, sometimes we have to wait for the person in front of us at the grocery store; whatever we are waiting for we need to do it patiently. What about when the waiting really is the hardest part like the 70’s song said? That’s what I think rings true with the Lord coming back. We have to continue the work, like the farmer who waits for the fruit of the earth we need to be busy keeping the weeds at bay and watering the seeds till they are strong and full and ready for harvest!
Even if someone is in front of us, we can work at getting the back ground work done and be ready to reach for that next thing to walk in. We can prepare the way just as Jesus prepares the way for us.

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.  You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!  My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord—that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. James 5:7-11
Don’t blame someone else for you not getting a project completed, know that sometimes things happen slower than others! God is great and His timing is different than ours all together, so, for example; don’t put the presser on your coworker to get it done faster but encourage them to take an extra step toward completion if it helps! Be blessed not stressed! Endure! You and God have got this!
Heavenly Father, help me be patient and be blessed not stressed! In Jesus’ name, amen.
